A delicious cake that tastes like my favorite candy bar. Servings are approximate depending on the size of the slices.

This is truly an award winning recipe. I made this and won second place in a baking contest. I only made a minor change. I reserved about 3/4 cup of the coconut and toasted it and put it on the top. I also put extra toasted almond on the top as a garnishment. It is soooo good. I would also recommend poking holes all around the cake to let the sweet mixture seep in. That sent it over the edge in yumminess!!
