Dang!! I thought there for a minute I would get to post this recipe as I was looking under 'almond joy brownie' recipe and the 3 that showed up were not the same but then I thought okay just in case try searching for almond coconut brownies. I haven't cooked this myself but my mother in law has made it for me several times and it is TO DIE FOR!!!! If you love almond joy you are gonna love this recipe, rich decadent and everything a coconut and chocolate lover could hope for.
