Described as “Almond Joys on crack.”
Line a 9×9″ baking dish with parchment paper and set aside.
Combine sweetened condensed milk and vanilla in a large bowl. Add the powdered sugar 1/2 cup at a time, stirring to fully incorporate. Add coconut and stir until well combined. Press mixture into prepared pan and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, cut the chilled coconut mixture into 1×2″ bars. Melt 1/4 cup of the chocolate chips in the microwave, checking every 15 seconds. Top each bar with a small amount of melted chocolate, then place 2 almonds on top of each bar on the chocolate. Place the bars with almonds on a large baking sheet and chill in the freezer for 15–30 minutes. Just make sure they are chilled so they don’t get too messy in the chocolate.
Melt the remaining chocolate chips. Once the bars are chilled, dip each bar into melted chocolate to coat completely. I did this by placing each bar on a fork then using a spoon to pour melted chocolate over each bar. Some of my Almond Joys didn’t have chocolate on the bottom, but I was okay with that. Place on a wax or parchment paper-lined baking sheet and chill in the refrigerator until firm. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container. Enjoy!
