This is what would happen. And it's delicious.
I saw this idea on Pinterest and it comes from the blog, Confessions of a Cookbook Queen.
Please don't repeat my mistake, however. I evidently don't own mini muffin tins so I made mine in regular muffin tins. This is a bad idea. I'm a big chocoholic but that was way.too.much. to eat. Sometimes, bigger isn't always better. Who knew?
Almond Joy Brownie Bites
Brownie batter (homemade, from a boxed mix, whatever is your favorite.)
4 cups sweetened shredded coconut
14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
About 4 dozen almonds
Chocolate candy melts or almond bark
Preheat your oven according to brownie recipe directions and generously spray two mini muffin pans with nonstick spray. Fill cups about 1/2 full with brownie batter and bake according to directions. When brownies are done, place pans on a cooling rack and remove brownies once cooled completely.
In a medium bowl, combine coconut and sweetened condensed milk. With clean hands, roll coconut mixture into balls and press onto tops of brownie bites. Press an almond into the top of each. Place brownies in the freezer to harden for about 15 minutes.
Melt almond bark or candy melts according to directions. Remove brownies from freezer and dip the tops in the chocolate. Place dipped brownies on a wax paper lined baking sheet and refrigerate until chocolate is set.
Depending on what brownie recipe you use, you should get about 36-48 brownie bites.
