Who doesn’t love Almond Joy Candy, right?  It has to be in my Top 3 candies ever.  Chocolate and coconut.  The perfect pair.  This recipe was inspired by our friend here at Daily Dish, The Binomial Baker and her Healthy Fudge recipe.  I took the basic recipe and expanded on it to recreate on of my favorites, but in a guilt-free version.  This is the perfect recipe for kids to get into – no baking and super easy!  I hope you love it as much as we did!

While the ingredients are much healthier than most recipes, remember oil is oil and is still a fat – so eat it in moderation.  

Also- honey is a natural sugar, same goes – eat in moderation.  Enjoy!

    • I store mine in the fridge. They stay soft but solid there. If you like super firm, then you can store in freezer. I do not recommend leaving out at room temperature for any length of time due to the yogurt.

  • Delicious recipe, I did not have any almonds in the house so I chopped up some cashew nuts instead and it worked very well.

    This is a good healthy alternative Saturday night instead of filling the kids with bags af store bought candies

  • Love almond joys! I will use agave also, maybe add some ground almonds to get the almond flavor in it!

  • This sounds fantastic. Printed as soon as I read it. Thanks so much for sharing. I’m learning to use agave nectar as a substitute for honey. It isn’t as sweet, but has a lower glycemic index and better for those of us watching our sugars.
