Almond Joy Truffles

This recipe for Almond Joy Truffles tastes just like the candy bar! It’s filled with a creamy coconut center, topped with an almond, and covered in dark chocolate. You are going to love this dessert!

My son doesn’t like nuts or coconut. So every year at Halloween, I always hope he’ll receive lots of those miniature Almond Joy candy bars in his treat bag–because that means I get to eat every one.

I love them. I love the sweet coconut center along with the almond crunch. So, of course, my quest to create the perfect treat during our Christmas Truffles and Bonbons series had to include some version of Almond Joy.

14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
4 cups sweetened flaked coconut
4 cups powdered sugar
1 cup butter, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla
dipping chocolate
toasted almonds


Mix milk, butter, coconut, vanilla, and sugar in a large mixing bowl.
Shape into 1 inch balls and place on wax paper or heavy weight dipping sheets.
Gently press one almond to the top of each coconut ball.
Refrigerate for about an hour or until firm.
Melt dipping chocolate according to package directions.
Dip the coconut balls into the chocolate and set on wax paper or dipping sheet.
Allow the Almond Joy Truffles about 5 minutes to harden. –enjoy!
