A chocolate coated sweet coconut candy bar that I call my low carb Almond Joy candy bar. It truly will have you jumping for joy when you take a bite.
There are several recipes for a homemade low carb Almond Joy Candy Bar that I’ve found on the internet. A couple are low carb versions. I’ve had my eyes on these for quite some time. As always, I like to tweak things in the recipes I find to make it my own. I used a can of Nestle Table Cream which is pretty easy to find in a Walmart store in the Hispanic food section.
This is my version of the famous chocolate covered coconut with almond candy bar that better known as a low carb Almond Joy candy bar. Most regular sugar recipes use sweetened condensed milk and I’m sure this makes for a chewy bar. I’m not sure how this chewy coconut center can be done without real sugar. However, the unsweetened coconut does hold together well with table cream and liquid sucralose. Although I didn’t try this with a erythritol and stevia blend for the coconut mixture, I’m sure the cream will still hold the coconut center together.
The hardest part to making this low carb Almond Joy candy bar recipe is staying away from these candies once they are finished and stored in the refrigerator. I had to hide them in the back so I don’t see them every time I open the fridge. If you love coconut as much as I do and miss eating Almond Joy candy bars, this is a recipe that is well worth your time.
