Easy Almond Joy Cookies Recipe

 Almond Joys are one of my favorite candy bars. I didn’t believe that there was anything that even compared until my Mom introduced these to me. They are DELICIOUS and taste just like an Almond Joy candy bar!

  1. Yumm, I also love Almond Joys. I'll definitely have to go for the semi-sweet, because I love dark chocolate, which always make me wish that Mounds had almonds in them. I'd love it if you shared these over at my link party. http://acraftycook.blogspot.com/2012/08/1-month-of-fun-august-link-party.html
  2. Just found your blog and am dying to try some of the recipes I've found here. I have a great Almond Joy recipe, it's actually bars that you cook and dip, but this is way easier. Can't wait to try it. I also have 5 sisters, but my dad is an only child and wanted a boy, to carry on the name, so they bought one. (Well, guess they call it adopted;o) Love the blog and can't wait to find more wonderful stuff to create.
  3. Question: If I make these to go on a cookie/treat tray as a gift for friends and neighbors, how would I package them? Would I need to, like, put each one on a muffin liner, or what? My husband was looking at the recipe and said, "You know, for a second set, you could leave out the almond, use darker chocolate instead, and call them Mounds Cookies." I think he's on to something. (So glad I married him...LOL!)
  4. I just made these this morning and they turned out horrible! They totally flattened out and completely stuck to the paper - like baked into the paper.I tried using my silpat for the next batch and they even stuck to that. Seriously, I couldn't scrape them off for anything. They didn't hold their shape at all either-the entire batch was a total loss. :( Where did I go wrong?? Any tips?
