Almond Joy Macaroons! Easy 3 Ingredient Recipe!
Do you have a food that you can not live without? You think about it, crave it and would put it on everything. Well, I like to call that food crack. And, unfortunately, I have a new food crack, something so yummy it will cause our family to fight over the last little bit. Hershey’s Chocolate Almond Spread. I am a sucker for chocolate covered almonds and this stuff just makes my addiction that much worse.
I first purchased it just to see what they hype was all about, and I am so glad that I did. I put it on a banana to taste test it, and it was AMAZING! Then shortly after cracking open the jar of goodness, Hubby came home. I knew there would be a fight over this one. He is a chocolate junkie, and I knew that he would want some, and I did not want to share! But, I broke down and gave him a taste. Long story short, there wasn’t much left in the jar after he got a hold of it.
So, I decided I need to act quick so I could take advantage of the rest of the yummy goodness. I decided to make macaroons and then drizzle some of the remaining chocolate on top. Hubby doesn’t like coconut, so I thought it would be a total win for me….. NOPE! Apparently he now loves Macaroons as long as they have Almond Chocolate Spread on them. I am pretty sure he would eat anything as long as it had this stuff on it. These macaroons were transformed into something that tasted a lot like an Almond Joy, but without the hard almonds. They are amazing! Who would have thought Almond Joy Macaroons. These are super simple, and only require 3 ingredients!
|Prep Time||5 minutes|
|Cook Time||10 minutes|
- 1 1/2 Cup Sweetened Coconut Flakes
- 1/2 Cup Sweetened Condensed Milk
- 3 Tbsp Hershey's Almond Chocolate Spread
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, combine coconut flakes and sweetened condensed milk.
- Roll into 1 inch balls and place on lined baking sheet.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes or until light golden brown flakes appear.
- Allow to cool on baking sheet for 15 minutes.
- Place chocolate spread in a small microwave safe bowl and microwave for 10-15 seconds.
- Drizzle heated chocolate over Macaroons. Allow to set for 10 minutes to allow chocolate to set.
Great recipe, I can’t wait to try it!

Oh my gosh, these look so amazing! Totally drooling. As for my food crack, it would have to be Nutella. Or just any chocolate in general 🙂 Found you on the Let’s Get Real Friday linky!

Oh, major YUM! I’m drooling here… great photos! Visiting from Let’s Get Real.
Now I know where I can put our Hershey’s Chocolate Almond Spread into good use. 😉 My kids LOVE Macaroons and chocolate. They’d bug me to bake this one, I’m pretty sure.
