For those of you not familiar with an Almond Joy it is a candy bar consisting of two coconut bars with two almonds on each top and then covered in milk chocolate. Oh, the joy of it! I could drink this almond joy coffee while eating the Almond Joy!
The Peter Paul Candy Manufacturing Company was founded by six Armenian immigrants in 1919, introducing the Mounds bar in 1921, which became a hit with the U.S. military during WWII. By 1944, the military purchased 80% of their production for use in rations (5 million bars/month). The Almond Joy bar was introduced in 1946. Almond Joys are as old as I am!
Here is a recipe for Almond Joy Coffee Creamer………….
