Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease a 9 x 13-inch (3 L) baking pan; set aside. Combine crumbs, melted butter and icing sugar in large bowl. Firmly press crumb mixture on bottom of prepared pan.


Stir together sweetened condensed milk, coconut flakes and almonds in large bowl, until well combined. Carefully drop spoonfuls of the coconut mixture over crust; spread evenly. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until coconut edges just begin to brown; cool to room temperature.


To toast almonds, heat oven to 350°F (180°C). Spread almonds in thin layer in shallow baking pan. Bake for 5 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned. Cool completely.


Combine chocolate chips and whipping cream in medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on MEDIUM (50%) for 1 minute; stir. If necessary, microwave on MEDIUM an additional 15 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating, until chips are melted and mixture is smooth when stirred. Cool until slightly thickened; spread over cooled bars. Sprinkle evenly with white creme chips. Cover and chill for several hours or until thoroughly set. Cut into bars. Reserve leftovers in the refrigerator.
