Almond Joy Bites


  • about 2.5T shredded coconut (unsweetened)
  • 2T raw honey* (preferably local)
  • about 4.5 oz. dark chocolate, at least 70% cocoa (I used a 72%)
  • 12 whole, raw almonds


  1. In a small bowl, mix the honey and coconut until fully combined.
  2. I used my silicone mini-muffin pan; if you don’t have a silicone pan, you might want to try using paper liners for easier removal of the candies once they’re done.
  3. Melt the chocolate—about 1.5 ounces should do to for this first step—and drizzle about a 1/2 teaspoon of it in the bottom of each spot in your mold. Chill in the refrigerator for a few minutes until the chocolate becomes firm. Then, spoon the coconut-honey mixture into the center of each, evenly distributing among the 12 cavities of the muffin pan.
  4. Press an almond into the top of each.
  5. Melt the rest of the chocolate and spoon over each one, covering the tops and sides to seal in the soft filling.
  6. Chill until the chocolate has hardened. Feel free to toss them in the freezer – they’re yummy frozen!
