Almond Joy Brownies

"This is a Pillsbury Bake-Off recipe from the 50s. The Almond Joys are melted and mixed into the recipe. I expected a more chocolately brownie when I discovered this recipe and was surprised to end up with a "blonde" coconut brownie with only a hint of chocolate taste. Very good."

    I've made these 4 or 5 times in the last two months for different parties and occasions and they are by far the most popular new item that I've baked. I don't even add the almonds if I don't have any...still goes quickly and have been asked for the recipe several times.

    These were soooo good. I made for a family reunion and they were all gone before it was over! I melted some milk chocolate and lightly drizzled it over the bars..I did it before I cut them, next time I will cut first then drizzle because it started to come off the brownies when cut into! Thanks I will make this often!
