Almond Joy Dip

If happiness could be wrapped up in a coconut-chocolate-almondy goodness Almond Joy's would be right on target.  The combination of sweet, and salty along with the perfect texture make them one of my favorite candy bars.

So of course, it was only a matter of time before I tried to make my own!

However, I was unsuccessful when it came to the dipping process.  

I didn't want to put all these yummy ingredients down the sink, so I decided to do some experimenting and create an Almond Joy dip!  

Goodness was I successful.  

Almond Joy Dip
Recipe slightly adapted from Vanilla Sugar Blog



Ingredients

14oz Sweetened Condensed Milk
12oz Sweetened Coconut
Pinch of Salt
3/4 C Milk Chocolate Chips
2 C Heavy Whipping Cream
Water
Directions

Mix the sweetened condensed milk, coconut and salt together in a bowl.  Make sure you get everything distributed evenly.  You can adjust the amount of coconut if you think it's too creamy. 


Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or in 30 second intervals in the microwave. Pour the chocolate onto the coconut mixture and combine thoroughly. Again, you can add more chocolate in if you want it to be more chocolaty.

Pour the heavy whipping cream into a large bowl and use the whisk attachment on your electric mixer until it is the consistency of whipped cream.

Mix the cream with the coconut mixture until thoroughly incorporated.  Serve with gram crackers or fruit!
