For those among us who LOVE coconut and almonds, the almond joy is perfect.
But i have a secret, i broke the code for the perfect almond joy, and its so easy. This is a great way to show off your mad kitchen skills with not a lot of effort.
Make a few or make a lot, this almond joy recipe is sure to please everyone.
(and it's VEGAN, don't tell anyone though, they'd never suspect!)
Step 1: Ingredients
I used the following ingredients to make these morsels
8oz shredded coconut
16oz of rice syrup (you could use corn syrup as well)
1/2 c almonds
12oz dark chocolate chips
Step 2: Mix Up Coconut and Syrup
First add the coconut and the syrup together in a bowl and mix together until the coconut clumps together.
Step 3: Shape and Add Almonds
Then shape out little candies and put an almond into each one.
I chose raw almonds over dry roasted due to their taste. Some variation would be to use different kinds of nuts.
Step 4: Chocolate Covering and Freeze
Next melt your chocolate (i used the microwave, you could use a double boiler).
Then dip each candy into the chocolate and place onto wax paper.
Once the candies are done put into the freezer until set and you're done!
Hope you enjoy these very yummy, very easy candies!
