Almond Joy Drink

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

  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)!
