Chewy Almond-Fudge Bars

Yield 2 dozen
Coconut candy bars and toasted almonds give this brownie its personality. If you like firm bars, chill them.


  • 1 (19.8-ounce) package chewy fudge brownie mix
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 14 miniature dark chocolate coconut candy bars, chopped (1 1/4 cups)
  • 3/4 cup chopped natural almonds, toasted

How to Make It

  1. Prepare brownie mix according to package directions, reducing vegetable oil to 3 tablespoons; pour into a lightly greased 13" x 9" x 2" pan. Pour sweetened condensed milk over batter; sprinkle with chopped candy bars and almonds.

  2. Bake at 350° for 36 to 38 minutes. Let cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Cut into bars.

  3. Note: For brownie mix, we used Duncan Hines. For minature dark chocolate candy bars, we used Mounds.
