Almond Joy No-Bake Cookies

Just a few minutes ago, I wrote a post about my Dad and his funny wish for No-Bake Cookies for Christmas. I shared the Rocky Road No-Bake Cookie recipe that I created, specifically for him, inspired by his favorite ice cream to have when I was growing up. 

Well, making just one No-Bake Cookie recipe for him didn't seem good enough so, today I came up with a second recipe, inspired by one of his favorite candies. Just in case you happen to like chocolate, almonds and coconut....here is the Almond Joy No-Bake cookie. 

Almond Joy No-Bake Cookies
1 3/4 cups white sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter
4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
3 cups quick-cooking oats
2/3 cup crushed almonds
1 cup sweetened shredded coconut (plus extra for sprinkling on top)

In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, milk, butter, and cocoa. Bring to a boil, and cook for 1 1/2 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in oats, crushed almonds and coconut. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper and lightly press a small amount of coconut onto the tops of each cookie.  Let cool until hardened.

    2. They are no bake cookies, not a mention of healthy. You could use splenda if healthier was the goal
