Almond Joy Candy Bar

I’ll never forget the day I had an Almond Joy as an adult. As a kid I said “I hate coconut” without ever really even trying coconut and one Halloween as we were following our children around, a friend handed me a mini Almond Joy and I was immediately smitten. I went on to eat bags and bags of them and make every sort of Almond Joy treat you can imagine, like brownies and cookies and pies, oh my!

I still can’t even buy a bag of mini Almond Joys to bake with unless I bake with it THAT DAY. Otherwise I’ll go to grab it for the recipe and all I’ll find are empty wrappers hidden underneath, like I’m hiding the evidence from myself.

When I realized that Almond Joy Coffee Creamer was a thing, I about died with joy. Now I could put Almond Joy in my coffee? OMG #bestdayever

Of course, I love using coffee creamer in coffee (I look forward to that teaspoonful every. single. day) but I also love using coffee creamer IN recipes. I’ve put it in traditional things, like dip and chocolate sauce, monkey bread and french toast, but I also love it in COCKTAILS! Adding a bit of your favorite flavor coffee creamer in place of cream in a drink adds a new dimension to any cocktail or cocktail alike. Hot chocolate becomes PEPPERMINT or a martini becomes a sugar cookie. Or…a cocktail becomes an ALMOND JOY CANDY BAR.

So what makes an Almond Joy Cocktail taste like an Almond Joy candy bar? 4 things: Vanilla (or whipped or plain) Vodka, Creme de Cocoa (the clear one), Amaretto (a nice dash of almond) and Almond Joy coffee creamer. Pour them all over ice and you have the makings of the perfect cocktail recipe.

These Almond Joy Cocktails are also super pretty to watch come together in the glass. The swirl of amaretto and creamer look gorgeous together!

  1. OMG, I’m your twin!! Have you ever had ‘Almond Joy’ pancakes? I don’t use the creamer, but it is definitely worth a try. Don’t use syrup, I always use just butter and powdered sugar on my flavored pancakes. I do LOTS of different flavors, give a certain restaurant a run for it’s money!

  2. Being that I like a little coffee with my creamer, this would be perfect for me! I had the Almond Joy years ago loved it in coffee. Now I need to make this with it!

  3. JOOOOOOYYYYYYYYY TO THE WORLD, all the five o’clocks now, joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea, joy to you and meeee (drinking this cocktail)!
