Notes

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.

Sounds like an interesting brownie/ blondie...I will try next time I want something less "chocolately"- I have a sister-in-law who doesn't really like things too chocolately but loves coconut, so this will be great! Thanks!
