Ally's Sweet and Savory Eats: Dark Chocolate Almond Joys

Dark Chocolate Almond Joys


Yes, technically Almond Joys are covered in milk chocolate and do not have dark chocolate, Mounds do, but I bent the rules.  It's just been one of those days.

Two sick kiddos, mom now catching it, shots today for both, and that makes for a Friday night without rules.  A night of cuddling, watching TV and having a sweet treat in these homemade Almond Joys.

I'm pretty sure I'll be including this recipe in my cookbook for family and friends I am working on.  You just can't beat a four ingredient recipe - people love those!  Well, at least I hope you love this one.  Try them and let me know.

Dark Chocolate Almond Joys (makes six large, or 12 small)
1/2 bag dark chocolate chips
2 T. milk or coconut oil
almonds
shredded coconut

In a microwaveable bowl, heat chocolate chips and milk in 15 seconds intervals, stirring after each until melted and smooth.

Using flexible muffins tins (makes them extremely easy to pop out when done), pour in enough chocolate to fill bottom layer of muffin tin.  Place spoonful of coconut and top with almonds.  Spoon additional chocolate on top to cover coconut and almond mixture.

Place in freezer to harden, about 10 minutes.  Pop out of muffin tin and enjoy!  Keep in the fridge for best storage.


Big weekend plans?  Not us.  We're staying in.  No plans and I'm loving every minute of it.  In true geeky mom fashion, I plan on tackling the laundry room (the storage space is out.of.control.), stocking the fridge up with next week's meals, watching football, working on the cookbook, and getting these darn kids outside in the fresh air in hopes that all germs will float away.

They will not ruin my weekend with no plans.

Now stop reading and get to making these!

    I really wish that I had big weekend plans ... but unfortunately I think I am staying in all weekend to work on my thesis.

  3. Hey there, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine
    but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,
    awesome blog!

  4. However even if it has helped only one student and
    given them a voice and the resulting help from The Sharp System
    then it can be counted as a resounding success. Make sure you
    submit all these data to your bookkeeper or accountant so they
    could pen it in. Thus, you will get the much needed flexibility in your personal efforts for
    improving the business.
