Low Carb Almond Joy Candy Bar
Servings: 25 candy bars
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.
In a large bowl, stir together table cream, sweetener, and vanilla extract. Mix in the unsweetened coconut.
Using about one tablespoon of coconut mixture each, form into a log and set onto a parchment paper or silicon mat lined baking sheet.
Place two almonds on each log (or omit nuts if making Mounds bars).
Put baking sheet of logs into freezer while making chocolate coating.
In a chocolate melter or double boiler, melt all chocolate coating ingredients together.
Remove the coconut logs from the freezer.
Place each coconut almond log on a fork and dip bottom into melted chocolate. Then use a spoon to drizzle chocolate over top and sides until log is completely covered in chocolate.
Wipe excess chocolate off bottom of fork on side of melter and then set on non-stick sheet to harden.
Repeat steps until each log is covered in chocolate.
Place finished sheets of candy in refrigerator.
Let sit at least an hour then remove and place in covered container. Store in refrigerator.
