Description

If you are a fan of Almond Joy candy bars then this recipe is for you. The recipe is very simple and easy to prepare and makes a great treat for the holidays.

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Unsalted Butter
  • 3 cups Shredded Coconut
  • 2 cups Confectioners Sugar
  • ½ cups Toasted Almonds
  • 12 ounces, weight Semi-sweet Chocolate Coating

Preparation

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or brush with melted butter.

Melt butter in a large sauce pan. Once the butter is melted, remove it from the heat and stir in the coconut and sugar.

Form mixture into small balls with 1 or 2 almonds in the center of each. I use a heaping tablespoon of the mixture for each ball.

Place chocolate coating in a small glass bowl and microwave on high in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until chocolate is melted and smooth.

Dip each ball into the chocolate and coat evenly. Use a fork to lift the candies out of the melted chocolate and allow the excess chocolate to drip off. Place the candies on the cookie sheet and allow to cool completely.
