Almond Joy Recipe



Copycat Almond Joy Recipe

“Sometimes you feel like a nut…” and when you do, you can make your own Almond Joy candy bars! This is the candy I confiscate from all of the kids after they’ve gone trick or treating 😀


Who knew that 6 simple ingredients could yield something so wonderful and delicious?! The vanilla was absent the day this picture was taken…lol!

Almond Joy 1

You can purchase your almonds already toasted, but in less than 10 minutes you can toast your own 🙂

Almond Joy 2

 Nothing but coconut and sugary sweetness in that bowl right there!


Now all they need is a blanket of melted chocolate and 30 minutes in the refrigerator. You’ll be tempted not to share, but you really should.
