Almond Coconut Candies


Candy is one of those things that is way too intimidating to me. Boiling sugar, thermometers, silicon mats, tempering chocolate, equipment I don’t have…. Did I mention boiling sugar? It’ll be many years before I feel comfortable making candy. But luckily, recipes like these give me the feeling like I’m making my own candy without all the hassle. And Germany doesn’t carry Almond Joys (At least no where I’ve seen), so there you go…

Ingredients

  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 tbsp virgin coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp almond milk
  • 50 grams dark chocolate (half of 1 bar)
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds

Directions

In a food processor, add first four ingredients and blend until coconut is a lot smoother and the mixer can be molded. If you don’t have powdered sugar, just blend regular sugar in the food processor first until it becomes powdery. After you blend the ingredients well, form little disks and place on a piece of wax paper or parchment paper. Place in the fridge until chocolate is ready. Chop the chocolate into little bits, then microwave ten seconds at a time, stirring thoroughly until chocolate is melted. Drizzle chocolate over coconut candies and top with slivered almonds. Recipe makes about 12 little candies.
