Ingredients

  • 3/4 c. shredded coconut
  • 1 teaspoon nondairy milk
  • 28 almonds
  • 3/4 c. vegan chocolate, melted mixed with 1 Tbsp. shortening or coconut oil until smooth
  • Almond Joy candy mold (optional)

Instructions

  1. 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. .



Notes

The amount that this makes completely depends on the size of coconut balls you create and/or whether you use a mold or not.
