Coconut Chocolate Bars

These are really good.  They are practically walking out of here.   My girls have been enjoying them in their lunches.

Coconut Chocolate Bars

2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup almond meal
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups flaked coconut (I used frozen grated, fresh coconut from Goya)
1 (12 ounce) package dark chocolate chips

In a 9 x 13 baking pan, combine melted butter, graham cracker crumbs and almond meal.  Mix together well.  Press evenly over bottom and place in preheated 350F oven for 15 minutes.

Remove pan from oven and pour the condensed milk/ coconut mixture evenly over top.  Place back in oven for 25 to 30 minutes.  The edges should be a bit golden.  If you use dry flaked coconut, place in oven for about 15 minutes.  Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over top.  Wait a few moments and spread the chocolate over top.  Let cool completely and cut with a sharp knife into squares.
