Years ago, I remember my mom making homemade Almond Joy candy bars. A quick Google search revealed a multitude of recipes, and since Almond Joy is one of my all-time favorite chocolate bars, I decided to give it a try.

Of course, you could always use this recipe to make a more traditionally shaped Almond Joy, but I decided to go the easy route and just roll everything into a ball. It doesn’t matter what shape they’re in, these Almond Joy Truffles are a coconut lovers dream!
