Almond Joy No Bake Cookies

These Almond Joy No Bake Cookies have flavors reminiscent of the classic Almond Joy candy bars for a quick and easy cookie for the holidays or a hot summer day.

No bake cookies are such an easy dessert to prepare last minute or when it’s crazy hot during the summers. No baking required just heat up the liquids, add in the dry ingredients and allow to cool.

For me, no bake cookies will always remind me of my husband’s college roommate who made them weekly. I remember one time that it was pretty warm out and his roommate had made the cookies but they just would not set up. 

We ended up making a mess eating the semi set no bake cookies with our hands. We still laugh about that time and it generally leads to further discussion of favorite memories from the beginning of our relationship.

Classic no bake cookies use peanut butter as well as these Slow Cooker Avalanche Cookies, but I wanted to mimic the flavors of one of my favorite candy bars- Almond Joys!

This time around I decided to make them reminiscent of almond joy bars. They had good coconut flavor with the crunchy-ness from the almonds.

  • If I’m in a hurry a put them on a cookie sheet and stick them in the freezer to set even quicker. 
  • I hate having to drop individual spoonfuls so I like to use a small ice cream scoop to get them even in size and get them dished out quickly. 
  • The longer it sits in the pan the harder it will be to get the scoops to stick together.
