1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup butter, melted
1 - 14 ounce package flaked coconut
1 - 14 ounce can (1 1/4 cups) sweetened condensed milk

Preheat oven to 350F. Place graham cracker crumbs, 1/2 cup of the almonds, and the brown sugar in a food processor. Cover and process until almonds are finely chopped.
