Bite-size Almond Joys + DIY packaging Print Recipe Print Recipe

For the record, these are better than the real deal. Just sayin’.

My first Almond Joy, high school. We were (still are) a licorice & M&M sorta family. It was my mother-in-law {not at the time} who I have to thank.  Trying to remember the specific occasion, my husband and I ended up reenacting reminiscing several high school memories. My stomach still hurts from laughing. And no, there wasn’t even wine involved, if you can believe that. Oh, he was on cold medicine. Me… yeah, I got nothing.

Moving on. The little bite-size almond joys, per-fection. This is for all you coconut + chocolate fans, including my mother-in-law. Warning: Don’t expect to stop at just one.

Tip: Avoid eating the entire batch – wrap them up for a neighbor or co-worker. These also make a great hostess gift and if you want to impress (more than you already have), you can make your own chocolate box. It’s easy (no really, it is), plus you can customize it however you’d like. Paper purchased at @Paper_Source. I spend too much time on twitter.

    All my life I have steered clear of coconut, I think it was the texture. But recently it has been looking rather appealing so I gave it a try…and liked it surprisingly! (funny how our taste buds change as we get older). These look delicious and may just have to be the 1st coconut dessert I have ever created!
