No-bake Almond Joy Cups
- 1 ½ cups sweetened shredded coconut
- ¾ cup sliced almonds, chopped coarsely (plus more for topping)
- 6 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
- 1 teaspoon almond extract
- 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
- 4 teaspoons vegetable oil
- coarse sea salt, for topping
- Line a 12-cup standard muffin pan with paper liners and set aside.
- Stir together sweetened shredded coconut, ¾ cup sliced almonds, sweetened condensed milk and almond extract in a medium bowl, until well combined. Set aside.
- Into another medium microwavable bowl, add chocolate chips and vegetable oil. Microwave for approximately 2 minutes (stirring every 30 seconds), until completely melted and smooth. (Microwave for additional few seconds, if not fully melted).
- Pour 1 tablespoon melted chocolate into each paper liner. Divide coconut-almond mixture into the 12 cups and press with your fingertips or the back of a spoon to pack them slightly. Top with an additional 1 tablespoon melted chocolate mixture and evenly spread with the back of a spoon to smoothen.
- Sprinkle some sea salt and sliced almonds (chopped if desired). Place muffin pan in the refrigerator to chill and set the chocolate for at least 4 hours. Store cups in an airtight container for 1-2 weeks in the refrigerator.

If you could find a way to make these appear on my doorstep in, like, five minutes I'd be so grateful :). They look delicious!
This almond lover loves this
heather (delicious not gorgeous)
oooh these look awesome! the storebought ones are a bit sweet for me, so making them homemade and being able to control the amount of sugar sounds perfect (:
Yes, I find them a little too sweet too. Thanks Heather:)

Love, love coconut and chocolate too!! These look amazing!!! Homemade candy is the BEST. I can't wait to make these and devour them entirely to myself 🙂
That was the issue at my home as well. It was certainly hard not to finish the entire batch:) Have a great weekend Kathy:)
I heard someone call Almond Joy the worst halloween candy, and for the rest of the day, I thought about how insane that person must be! This homemade version looks delicious!!! Plus you can use better quality chocolate when you make them yourself!! I love Almond Joy bars (except for the too-sweet waxy chocolate), so these look like something I could eat an entire batch of! Although, I don't know if thats a good thing or not;)
Lol, every person has their own favorite candy, I guess. You are totally right about controlling the quality of ingredients when made at home. Thank you so much Maria:)
