Homemade Almond Joys with Dark Chocolate



Ingredients:


  • 1 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup condensed milk *
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 18-36 roasted almonds
  • 2 cups dark chocolate chips, or the chocolate of your choice
  • Optional: 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 36 tiny cupcake liners, about 1" in size

Method:

  1. Stir together the coconut, condensed milk and vanilla. It should be sticky and hold it's shape when pressed together. Melt the chocolate in a glass bowl over a pan of water, or in the microwave at half power for about 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds or so.
  2. Drizzle 1 teaspoon of chocolate into the bottom of each cup. Add 1 teaspoon of the coconut mixture. Press on the coconut slightly to make the chocolate slide up the sides of the liner. Top the coconut with an almond and then pour a teaspoon of chocolate on top. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to eat. Store in the refrigerator for up to a week or in the freezer for a couple of months. Enjoy!
