Homemade Almond Joy Bars/Truffles… a healthier option. Growing up, one of my favorite candy bars was Almond Joy or Mounds. I didn’t have it regularly, but when I did, I enjoyed it immensely.
Double recipe, if also making truffles… and chop almonds.
Makes about 10 pieces
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
2-3 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons maple syrup/honey(honey is sweeter)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
few drops of almond extract, optional
small pinch of salt
10 whole almonds lightly toasted, or as needed
4-5 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips or bars, chopped
walnuts for making the clusters, if you have leftover melted chocolate
