If you like Almond Joy candy bars (like I do) then you will love this cake.
Coconut haters look away. Look away now.
This is not the cake for you.
This is only for the truly devoted chocolate and coconut lovers.
I guess this could also be called Mounds Cake too if you removed the almonds from the top.
You remember the commercial, right?
"Almond Joy's got nuts. Mounds don't."
It truly is the candy bar in cake form.
And it is pretty darn easy to make too!
I was worried when I first started thinking about making this kind of cake that it would end up coming out too sweet. I had seen some recipes that had called for quite a large amount of additional sugar and marshmallows.
I wanted a simpler recipe that wasn't so sweet you would break a tooth.
I think this recipe does that.
It ain't the neatest cake to cut into but I promise the taste is scrumptious!
Cause sometimes you feel like a nut...
