Coconut Almond Fudge Bars


It was time for some baking. I have been devouring crappy sweets at work, AKA grocery store, and, really it all sort of sucks big time.
So what to make, what to make?
This....gooey and rich and yummy.
Yes, my own creation.
Applause is accepted.
And money.
Or winning lottery tickets.
Or rich wonderful husbands (not yours of course).

I wish I could just throw ingredients together to create such a delicious bar. But.. if you've noticed, I'm all about the what ifs and by the time I get through deciding what I should add in, I usually end up making something from a recipe..haha. And it's not like I trust any recipe either. O boy.. it's stressful being me..hahah

Can you pass one of those rich husbands my way if someone gives you more than one? And the same goes for the lotto ticket!
