No-bake Almond Joy Cups


1 1/2 cups sweetened shredded coconut

3/4 cup sliced almonds, chopped coarsely

1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk

1 teaspoon almond extract 

2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips

4 teaspoons vegetable oil

For topping,

Coarse sea salt

Additional 2-3 tablespoons sliced almonds, chopped if desired


1. Line a 12-cup standard muffin pan with paper liners and set aside.

2. Stir together sweetened shredded coconut, 3/4 cup sliced almonds, sweetened condensed milk and almond extract in a medium bowl, until well combined. Set aside.

3. 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).

4. 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. 

5. Sprinkle some sea salt and sliced almonds (chopped if desired).

6. 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.

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:)
