Ginny Bell of Arnold and her grandson, Tucker, were inspired to develop this no-bake recipe after enjoying the flavors of Almond Joy candy bars at Halloween. With its mixture of almonds, dark chocolate, coconut and flaxseed meal, it almost passes as health food, too. But it doesn't taste like health food.
Makes: 25 treats
12 ounces chocolate chips (such as Hershey's Special Dark)
1 cup sliced honey roasted almonds (such as Trader Joe's)
1 cup sweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup whole ground flaxseed meal
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
Melt chocolate chips in microwave on high power for 2 1/2 minutes. When fully melted, quickly stir in remaining ingredients. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto baking sheet lined with wax paper. Chill in refrigerator for one hour or freeze for later use.
