Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t. Almond Joy’s got nuts, Mounds don’t.
Anyone remember that jingle?!
For this recipe I felt like a nut, because I love that salty almond flavor in my No Bake Almond Joy Cookies!
If you are reading this in real time than you know it is being published not too long after Halloween. I was a little afraid to post this recipe because after trick or treating on Halloween all the kids were giving me their Almond Joys.
I thought, Great!
Am I the only one who likes Almond Joy’s? Well, if that is the case, I guess I will be the only one to read or use or eat this recipe!
If you like a super sweet treat then you are going to love this recipe! They are made with 5 simple ingredients… mostly sweet.
- powder sugar
- flaked sweetened coconut
They are a great 3 bite cookie. You do not want to make them any bigger because they are so sweet. Three bites does the job!

How to Make No Bake Almond Joy Cookies
On the stove top or in the microwave melt the butter.
Add the coconut, powder sugar, and a pinch of salt to the butter and stir to combine.
Taking about 1 1/2 teaspoons of coconut mixture at a time form small balls. Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. You will end up with 12-15 cookies.
Take an almond, salted, unsalted, or raw (I like the salted almonds to add a little salty to all the sweet), and press one into the middle of each coconut ball.
Cover and place in the fridge for at least 1 hour, up to 2 days.
Melt the chocolate chips and dip the bottom of each cookie into the chocolate. Place back on the parchment lined cookie sheet and refrigerate for an additional 30 minutes. You can also drizzle the extra chocolate over the top of the cookies.
Store in an air tight container in the fridge for up to a week.
I hope you give these No Bake Almond Joy Cookies a try in your kitchen!
