Their eyes burst wide open and their senses clear.
Another bite.  They smile, and then they melt with happiness.

The almond and coconut flavors pair perfectly.  And why not make it better by encasing the two in smooth, milky chocolate?
That’s sort of my solution to everything – cover it in chocolate!
I know I’m not alone on that one  ;)

Almond Joy Chocolate Candy Cups

Yield: 8 candy cups

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Melt the chocolate and line this mold or muffin liners with the chocolate, creating a base and walls. Refrigerate for 40 minutes to an hour, whenever chocolate is completely hardened.
  2. Fill each cup with the spread (I didn't measure, I just put a spoonful in each). Spoon some chocolate over the spread and anchor the chocolate to the edge of the hardened chocolate. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours or overnight, when chocolate is completely hardened (I refrigerated overnight)
  3. When completely hardened, pop the candy cups onto a serving plate and serve.

Notes

I used Guylian chocolate. Vegan milk chocolate is available at many food stores/online, it just might not be sugar free.

This recipe is: no bake, sugar free, gluten free, vegan!
