#SRCHolidayTreats ~ Almond Joy Fudgies

Welcome to the special Holiday Treats edition of the Secret Recipe Club! I received Grandma Loy's Kitchen blog for this reveal day and was excited to get to know a new-to-me blogger outside of my own fantastic Group D. I didn't go far at all upon reaching the recipe index though. The very FIRST item on the list was it for me. Almond Joy Fudgies. Um... yes please! This recipe was shared by Grandma Loy for Christmas 2011 as part of a 12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies and Sweets blog hop. I am so glad she picked this one to share - and so glad it was right there at the top calling out to me!

I love Almond Joy candy bars - not something I eat more than a few times a year (generally at Halloween when I pick a few out of my kid's "loot"), but that combination of chewy coconut, crunchy almond, and sweet chocolate never fails to hit the spot for me. My two year old kitchen assistant was very curious about these tasty smelling treats!

These soft, chocolaty fudgy brownies are loaded with a thick core of sweet almond kissed coconut goodness. They are rich and decadent and will satisfy any sweet tooth in no time at all.

There are a TON of amazing holiday worthy treats linked in the round up below - take a peak, save a few recipes and definitely get baking! Happy Holidays!
