ALMOND COCONUT BARS
I decided we needed a dessert on here.
Okay, if any of you haven't tried these yet, they are the BOMB! They taste just like Almond Joy bars. And they're also super easy!
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 1 pkg)
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1 pkg (7 oz) flaked coconut
2 cups semisweet choc chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
24 whole almonds
In a small bowl combine graham cracker crumbs and butter.
Press into ungreased 9x13x2" baking pan. Combine milk and
coconut; carefully spreading over crust.
Bake at 350* for 18-20 minutes or until lightly browned.
In microwave bowl, combine choc chips and peanut butter.
Microwave on high for 1 min; stir. Microwave 30-60 seconds
longer or until chips are melted; stir until smooth.
Spread over warm bars. Garnish with almonds. Refrigerate
for 1 hour before cutting.
