Ready In:
18 brownies




  • Preheat oven to 350. Spray 9X13X2 pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Prepare Brownies as indicated on the box but add 1 tsp almond extract the same time you add the eggs. Cool. When the brownies are cool, poke holes all over the brownie's surface with a fork. (Keep the oven on).
  • Put the condensed milk into a small medium sized saucepan and bring to a low boil over medium heat. Stir often so it doesn't turn the milk into caramel. Add the marshmallow cream and continue mixing until combined. Add the coconut and mix well. Spoon the coconut mixture over the cooled brownies and put it back in the oven for 8 minutes. Cool. (Turn off oven).
  • In small bowl, melt chocolate chips in the microwave for a minute at a time and mix well. Continue until completely melted. Drizzle over bars. While the chocolate is still soft and unset, scatter almonds over the bars too. Cover lightly and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
  • Cut brownies 3 lines lengthwise with a sharp knife, then 5 lines across. You'll have 18 beautiful almond-joy-ee brownies!
  • Raves all around!

    I ? the condensed milk. 1st is this suppose to be sweetened condensed milk, or evaporated milk? And either way - how much of the can are we suppose to use? It says the entire amount won't be used, but no mention as to how much or how little. I made this but with about 1/2 can of evaporated milk and it doesn't seem right. I also know that cooking sweetened condensed milk will make it caramelize, but not so much evaporated milk. Very confusing...

    These brownies are AWESOME!! I have made them several times and everyone loves them. The only thing I do differently is use mini chocolate chips for the topping. I sprinkle them on while the coconut mixture is still warm so they melt a little and the almonds stick to them. Delicious!

    These are TDF. So rich and thick and a great little indulgence. I made these as directed and made sure I allowed for the cooling time. My coconut mixture was quite thick and so I wanted to make sure that the brownies were not going to fall apart while spreading the coconut mix. Sinful...just sinful!!!! A sure repeat.~

    Oh YUM!!! is right. We cut smaller bars because this is very gooey, sweet and rich. I didn't quite understand the directions on when to top with the coconut mixture and when to top that with the chocolate chips and almonds, so I didn't use much cooling time. I ended up using a knife to poke holes in the brownies, and the fork kept pulling up hunks of the brownies (probably due to the no cooling time). Will definitely make this again.
