Almond Joy Brownies

A few months ago, my girlfriend called to see if she could stop in for her monthly visit. After we set a date, she informed me she was bringing dessert. I was super excited, because she always brings over the most decadent cheesecakes. When she arrived, she handed me a muffin tin, which contained our dessert. I opened it up, to find these delectable brownies inside. We anxiously awaited the end of dinner, so we could all dig into these beauties.

All that could be heard, around the dinner table was sounds of absolute delight as we all took the first bite. The brownies were tender and fudgey, the coconut had set up and toasted on top, to form a beautiful macaroon on top of the brownies. Topped with chocolate and chopped almonds, these brownies were absolutely out of this world! I asked her where she found the recipe, and she just told me to google Almond Joy Brownies. So, I did. And I decided to go with the recipe I found over at Flour Me With Love. These are super easy to make and are sure to impress!

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

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
