Almond Delight

  • Yield: 6 to 8 servings

This recipe for almond delight seems to be a hit. Everytime I take it to a cookout or get-together they all want the recipe!


Crumb mixture:
1/4cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2cup margarine, melted
1/2cup sliced almonds
1cup flaked coconut
1cup all-purpose flour
2 (3-ounce) boxes instant coconut pudding mix
2cups cold milk
1 (8-ounce) container whipped topping


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Stir together the brown sugar, margarine, almonds, coconut, and flour until well blended. Pour into a shallow baking pan, and bake for 30 minutes, stirring several times while baking. It will resemble granola. Remove the crumb mixture from the oven to cool.
  2. Combine the coconut pudding mix, milk, and whipped topping, and set in the refrigerator to thicken for about 10 minutes.
  3. In a 9-inch square pan, sprinkle three-fourths of the crumb mixture. Cover with the thickened filling, and top with the remaining crumbs. Refrigerate until serving time.
