Almond Joy Meets a Peanut Butter Cup

This delicious confection is exactly what the title says. Two favorite candy bars wrapped into one awesome dessert. And it's easy. Amber needed a quick treat for a baby shower. She had everything in the house to make these, it was a done deal--done delicious I might add. The top layer is chocolate and peanut butter heaven. The base is full on coconut and almonds. It's perfect.

 Almond Joy Meets a Peanut Butter Cup


1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 (7-ounce) package flaked coconut
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
3/4 cup slivered almonds
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put butter in a 9x13 baking pan, melt in oven. Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs evenly over melted butter.
Top with coconut, almonds & drizzle sweetened condensed milk evenly over
all. Bake 25 minutes or until light brown.
In small saucepan over low heat melt
chocolate chips and peanut butter.
Spread evenly over hot bars.
Cool 30 minutes then chill thoroughly.
