Sometimes you feel like a nut Almond Joy cake

Rayvetta Burris Recipe

By Rayvetta Burris ryvtta

I came up with this combination after seeing an old retro almond joy/mounds candy bar commercial. I thought that would make a great cake. So I went on a quest to find a recipe because I was sure that there had to be one. There are Almond Joy cake recipes out there but they did not have coconut and almonds in them. I bake this for a church function and it was a big hit.
