Almond Joy Bars

My friend Jan V. gave me this recipe.  It is so super easy, yet so good.  Very similar to the Magic Bars (easy, right) but with a little more decadent chocolate taste.  The sliced almonds on top offered a toasted, caramel flavor.  I would never have guessed that the crust was made from a cake mix.  It tasted very much like shortbread.  This was a definite crowd pleaser at our last gathering.  

Almond Joy Bars  

1 yellow cake mix
1 stick of melted butter
Slivered almonds
Shredded coconut
1 can sweetened condensed milk
Semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Grease or butter a 9x13 inch pan.  
1st layer-Mix the cake mix and butter in bowl and then press the mixture as the first layer (press with fork). 
2nd layer-chocolate chips 
3rd layer-shredded coconut. 
4th layer-slivered/sliced almonds. 

Then pour sweetened condensed milk over the top.

Bake at 350 degrees until light golden brown. Be careful not to overbake. I bake this for about 20 minutes but check the bars often so as not to over brown the bars. Enjoy!!
