When I was younger I actually couldn't stand the taste of coconut or almonds.  For whatever reason, I don't know, but now I love them.  When my husband asked me to make a cookie that tasted like an Almond Joy, these cookies are what happened!

They have the most amazing crunch with a soft center.  The chocolate, almonds & coconut are absolutely delicious together.  I hope you enjoy these as much as we do!
