Ingredients

  • ·
    1/2 c. white karo (corn) syrup
  • ·
    1/4 tsp. salt
  • ·
    10 large marshmallows (exactly 10 or the consistency is off)
  • ·

  • ·
    1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • ·
    roasted almonds
  • ·
    chocolate chips

How to Make Homemade Almond Joys

Step-by-Step

  1. In a heavy sauce pan (over medium on the stove) heat syrup, marshmallows, and salt until marshmallows are melted. Continue to stir over heat for an additional minute. Remove from stove and add coconut and vanilla. Stir well and transfer to a bowl to cool in the fridge. The mixture needs to get cool enough that it can be rolled into balls.
    In the meantime, melt the chocolate chips. I like to do this by putting them in a metal bowl and placing the bowl over a pot of boiling water. Stir until chocolate is melted and smooth. Roll the coconut mixture into small balls and press an almond into the top. Dip each one in chocolate then let cool on a chilled marble slap or on wax paper over a chilled cookie sheet.
    For Homemade Mounds: omit the almond and use dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips.
