Feature: Almond Joy Fudge Brownies Recipe: Bar Cookie Version of the Candy Bar

This Almond Joy Fudge Brownies recipe mimics Almond Joy candy bars. If you like chocolate, coconut and almonds, you will be in heaven. D-E-L-I-S-H!

Almond Joy bars were developed by Peter Paul Candy Manufacturing Company in 1946 (now owned by Hershey) as a sibling to the Mounds bar, which was wildly popular with the U.S. military during World War II. If you know candy bars, you probably know the differences between the two. While Mounds is made up of shredded coconut and dark chocolate, Almond Joy is made with milk chocolate-covered coconut topped with (of course) whole almonds.

But back to this recipe.  It’s got the Almond Joy’s chocolate, coconut, and almonds all combined in an amazing bar cookie. Plus it’s so easy to make, especially if you use a brownie mix for the bottom layer. The other layers are just measure, mix, spread (or drizzle), and bake.

Prep time: about 10 minutes
Baking time: 45 minutes, divided
Makes about 36-48 brownies, depending on how you cut them
