No Bake Almond Joy Bars

All you fans of the candy bar, Almond Joy...I have got a treat for you. These bars are even better than the regular almond joy, in my opinion. Chocolate, coconut, almonds, a little extra crunch from the cereal, and the gooeyness for marshmallow. I found this recipe on ladybehindthecurtain.com blog. 



Ingredients
10 ounces mini marshmallows
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon coconut flavoring
2 cups sweetened flaked coconut
2 cups Honey Bunches of Oats with almonds
1-1/2 cups almonds, chopped
1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
Directions
Line a 9x9x2 -inch baking pan with foil.
Ingredients
10 ounces mini marshmallows
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon coconut flavoring
2 cups sweetened flaked coconut
2 cups crispy flake and crunchy oat cluster cereal with honey and almonds ( I used Honey Bunches of Oats with almonds)
1-1/2 cups almonds, chopped
1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
Directions
Line a 9x9x2 -inch baking pan with foil and spray with non stick cooking spray.  In a large bowl,  microwave marshmallows and the 3 tablespoons of butter on high 1 to 2 minutes or until butter is melted. Stir in coconut flavoring.  Stir in coconut, cereal and almonds.  Cool slightly.  Gently fold in chocolate pieces.  Press mixture lightly into the bottom of the prepared pan.  Let stand about our or until set.  Using the edges of the foil, lift uncut bars out of pan.  Cut into squares.
