Almond Joy* candy bars are a delightful little treat, but what happens when you’re in the mood for one and you don’t have any?  You make Almond Joy* Brownie Bites!  These are the perfect snack to take that craving away.  First there is a chocolate fudge brownie base that’s topped with sweetened coconut.  Then drizzle on some chocolate, sprinkle on some almonds and it’s perfect.   So simple and oh so delicious!

Ingredients are as follows:
1 box of family size Chocolate Fudge brownie mix
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk 
1 (14 oz.) bag coconut
1/4 C milk
1 C chocolate chips, melted
1/4 C almonds (or nuts), crushed
Directions:Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line (regular size, not mini) cupcake pan with paper liners.  (Don’t skip the paper liners, I did the first time and they all stuck!  This recipe makes 24 brownie bites, however I’m only showing 12).

Make brownies according to package directions and pour batter only half way up the liners.
Bake in preheated oven for 12 minutes.  While they are baking, mix the coconut, sweetened condensed milk and milk together.
Remove brownies from oven and spoon on some sweetened coconut.
Place back in oven and continue to bake an additional  14-16 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before removing the paper liners. Drizzle on the chocolate then sprinkle on the almonds.
Take a bite and enjoy!
