Almond Joy Brownies

okay.. I love experimenting with brownies and trying to make them taste like candy bars.... I made these last night and they turned out pretty good! I used my favorite brownie recipe and then did the filling on my own. I must say they taste pretty much like an Almond Joy!

Almond Joy Brownies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 13x9 inch baking pan with parchment paper, leaving about 3 inches hanging over each side for handles.

Melt in saucepan:
1 cup of butter
4 - 1 ounce squares of unsweetened chocolate

Remove from heat and add:
2 cups of sugar

Stir; then add:
4 eggs, one at a time, stir after adding each one

Then stir in:
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Then add:
1 1/2 cups flour
dash or two of salt
Stir till blended, then set aside.
Prepare coconut mixture:
Mix 1 can sweetened condensed milk in a medium size bowl, with 2 1/2 cups coconut. Stir to combine.

Pour a little less than half the chocolate mixture in prepared baking pan. Spread to cover the bottom of the pan. Then  spoon the coconut mixture into the pan and spread to cover the chocolate layer. Then place whole almonds on the coconut so you get an almond in every bite. Drizzle the remainder of the brownie mixture over the nuts and coconut. Then spread best you can without disturbing the nuts or the coconut.

Bake in oven for about 30 minutes or until brownies are set. Cool for about 30 minutes. Then using the parchment handles lift out of pan and cool completely. Then cut into squares and serve!! Yumm!
