Today’s recipe is for those of us who love the flavor of the Almond Joy candy bar, or at least for those of us who love that chocolate, almond, and coconut combination. One of the great things about this pie is that there is no baking involved, and it’s very, very quick to make and even faster to eat! It’s truly reminiscent of an Almond Joy, but with a lot more of a chocolate punch. And, it’s a winner every time I’ve served it. I hope this will become a must for your dessert rotation.
