Almond Joy Truffles


With the coming Holidays it seems candy making in my kitchen is at an all-time high.  I love having no-bake recipes, such as this, that are a snap to whip up and can be left for snacking when guests arrive.

And the best part?  These taste just like an Almond Joy candy bar.  What could be better?


Almond Joy Truffles
makes approx 24 truffles

1/3 cup coconut cream {NOT coconut milk}
3/4 cup shredded coconut
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 Tablespoon butter
1/3 cup shredded coconut, place in a shallow bowl or on a plate, to roll the truffles in

In a medium-size saucepan bring the coconut cream and 3/4 cup shredded coconut to a simmer over medium-high heat, stirring frequently.

Once the mixture simmers, turn off the heat, add the white and chocolate chips and butter and stir vigorously, keeping the pan on the burner, until the chips melt completely.

Pour the mixture into a bowl and refrigerate until firm, about 3 hours.

Using a spoon or a small cookie scoop, scoop out some of the truffle mix, roll between your hands to form it into a ball, and then roll it in the reserved coconut.  Repeat with remaining truffle mix.

Refrigerate truffles until ready to serve, or up to 1 week.


Wishing you all Happy Holidays and a safe and Happy New Year.
Until next month!
