(Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday)
Just like the crispy corner edges of brownies tend to be overlooked for the moist, inside squares;so are Almond Joy candy bars for the more chewy, caramelly and texture-induced candies. Thank goodness that I love the corner pieces and Almond Joys! Why?
That means more for me. The fact that Almond Joys get a bad rap bums me out. Why the hate towards the loveliest of candies, friends?
It’s the trifecta of bliss, really.
My mouth is literally watering as I look at this picture. (Mind you, I have a whole batch in the other room but I’m too lazy to get up. I prefer to adore them from afar for now). So throw your coconut-loving friends a bone here and make them some of these this Halloween! They will love you for it. Money back guaranteed.Print
- Blend your coconut for a good 5 minutes until almost smooth. Add a teaspoon of non-dairy milk to help it along if needed. The coconut should now be still a little chunky but smooth enough to stick together. If not, keep blending.
For the mold: Coat the mold with a thin layer of melted chocolate. Place the almonds first into its spot and then insert a small amount of coconut filling into the mold to fit. Cover the bottom with chocolate and freeze for 15 minutes or until set.
For non-mold users: Roll blended coconut into balls to create rectangles between your hands and place 2 almonds on top. Place on wax paper and freeze for 15 minutes. Coat with melted chocolate and then freeze another 15 minutes or until set. .
The amount that this makes completely depends on the size of coconut balls you create and/or whether you use a mold or not.

To me, these are like the Klondike Bar. I would do anything for them (((kinda like how Meatloaf would do anything for love))) Would I… Act like a monkey? Actually watch the movie, “Bucky Larson”? Wax my facial hair? Tap dance on the corner of the street dressed as a bumble bee? You betcha.
