This one came from needing a cake for church pot luck. Having left over nuts and coconut in the freezer. And I love Chocolate and coconut together. We all loved it. I hope you do too.

Now I need to figure out how to change the date on my camera. Looks like I'm still operating in 2008.. LOL

One of my fondest memories of childhood is of the yummy chocolates that I enjoyed with a bottle (yes, bottle!) of Coke everyday after school. Almond Joys were a favorite, and one bite of this wonderful cake transports me right back to the 60's. Love it! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
