INGREDIENTS FOR ALMOND JOY COOKIES

almond joy cookies raw ingredients that are labeled

You will need: 

  • 5 cups sweetened coconut flakes 
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips 
  • ¾ cup roughly chopped almonds 
  • 14oz can sweetened condensed milk 
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

Chocolate Chips: You can make your cookies with any type of chocolate chips. I have used dark chocolate, white chocolate, and milk chocolate chips. Butterscotch would be good as well! 

Almonds: You can buy pre-chopped almonds or whole almonds and crush them yourself. To do so, place the almonds in a Ziploc bag and roll over them with a rolling pin to crush them up.

HOW TO MAKE THIS ALMOND JOY COOKIES RECIPE

STEP FOUR: In a large mixing bowl combine the coconut flakes, chocolate chips, and chopped almonds. Using a wooden spoon, stir to combine the dry ingredients. 

STEP FIVE: Pour the condensed milk mixture over the coconut mixture. Stir until all of the coconut mixture is completely coated.

STEP SIX: Using a 1 to 1 ½ tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop out the coconut mixture into slightly wet hands and shape them into a ball. Place on the cookie sheet. Slightly press the ball down. Place the cookie balls 2 inches apart. Remember to keep your hands slightly wet to keep the cookie balls from sticking to your hands.

STEP SEVEN: Bake for 12 to 14 minutes.

STEP EIGHT: Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to rest on a cookie sheet for 8 to 10 minutes, before moving them to a cookie rack. The cookies will be very gooey until they are allowed to cool and set properly. They will fall through the slats of a cookie rack if you don’t let them sit for some time. 

STORAGE

IN THE FRIDGE: Store your cookies in an airtight container. You can leave them on the countertop at room temperature, or place them in the refrigerator. 

IN THE FREEZER: Cookies can be frozen for up to 3 months in an airtight container or Ziploc bag. Let them thaw at room temperature before serving.
