Who loves Almond Joy? Go on, don’t be shy, raise those hands up high! Who else just loves the combo of coconut, chocolate and almonds, regardless of it being in candy bar form?
Yep, I thought so. 😉
I’m BEYOND pleased to share the Almond Joy-remixed version of my chocolate coconut cups from last week! Here’s the thing, this all started last Halloween when I shared my recipe for Paleo Almond Joy. Since those few short months ago, that recipe has become one of the most popular recipes on Beaming Baker.
Thereby proving one of Erik’s theories: people LOVE Almond Joy anything. Since then, I’ve gone on to share exactly zero more Almond Joy recipes with you. Because I’m smart like that. *coughs*
The thing is, I just wasn’t sure how to go about another Almond Joy recipe! Should I start with Almond Joy brownies? Maybe go in a different direction with an Almond Joy smoothie? Perhaps go for an AJ cookie instead? The possibilities were, and still are, endless. Imagine, Almond Joy truffles…
But, I had another one of Erik’s totally unsolicited pieces of advice echoing in my mind (he is so annoying sometimes… 😉 )… it goes something along the lines of: when in doubt, make a cup. And by cup, I mean, CANDY cup!!! Followed by vigorous eyebrow raises and a few exaggerated elbow nudges. Oh, Erik…
Guess what though? He was totally right! But don’t tell him I said that. Ahem. These homemade Almond Joy cups were even more fun to make than my candy cups of days’ past (peanut butter, almond butter fudge, cookie dough, to name a few).
To top it off, these had more coconut. And I mean, literally, topped off. 🙂 Alright, alright, enough with the corny “jokes.” Something about eating/making/then eating more candy makes me wayyyy too energetic. I wonder what it could be… 😉
Now before I go off on a tangent even the pointiest of elbow nudges couldn’t get me out of, allow me to tell you all about these Homemade Almond Joy Cups. They’re:
- scrumptiously crispy, chewy and crunchy
- packed with just the right amount of your favorites: coconut, almond and chocolate
- made with just 5 simple ingredients
- vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, and paleo
- delicately sweet, perfectly satisfying
- plant-based and allergy-friendly
- so good, you’ll be walking around thinking about what else you could make in cup form afterward…
So are ya ready to get your cup on? Grab your 5 ingredients, your biggest Almond Joy-craving-induced appetite and meet me in the kitchen! It’s time to go Willy Wonka up in this piece (excluding all of the mysterious incidents, of course). I can’t wait to hear what you think of this recipe! In the meantime, tell me:
What’s your favorite way to enjoy candy?
- As is, in candy form

- As ice cream
Sending you all my love and maybe even a dove, xo Demeter ❤️
