Almond Joy Brownies – An almond joy candy bar turned into a super fudgy brownie.

I can’t believe that Halloween is almost here.  I think we may have decided what my 10 year old is going to be for Halloween, but it is a pretty easy and not exciting at all.  I am not happy with his choice, but he is pretty set on it, so we will just go with it.  At some point I guess I better get candy for the trick-or-treaters.  I haven’t even gotten out our Halloween decorations this year.  I am just so far behind!  Maybe at this point I should just start getting ready for Christmas, so I can at least accomplish something this year!

So in the interest of being close to Halloween and candy season I am turning the Almond Joy candy bar into a brownie.  I am a sucker for brownies, they are pretty much my all time favorite dessert.  And the fudgier the better!  For these fudgy brownies I added a layer of sweetened coconut, sliced almonds, gooey chocolate ganache, and then topped with even more sliced almonds.  So if you like chocolate, coconut and almonds, you NEED to try these!  My dad’s favorite candy bar is an Almond Joy, so I am kind of sad that I didn’t get to share these with him. I am pretty sure he would have loved them!
