Almond Joy Cocktail – an easy cocktail recipe that tastes like an Almond Joy Candy Bar! Vodka, amaretto, creme de cocoa, and Almond Joy Coffee Creamer make one tasty drink!
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.
I used my favorite International Delight creamer, the Almond Joy flavor, to create this Almond Joy Cocktail recipe.
How to Make This Almond Joy Cocktail
It has just 4 easy ingredients and whips up fast. It’s the perfect dessert or after-dinner drink, or a nice cocktail for you sweet and creamy drink lovers out there.
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!
