Almond Joy Truffle Cake ….An Ode to my Favorite Candy!


ImageDon’t you just love Almond Joy?… I do!..I really do. I can eat one any time of the day..or night, for that matter.. I also have a special relation with this beautiful candy bar. My second day in the US – newly married, missing home badly, hubby at work, alone in the new house, miles and miles of white snow around, cold and scared, almost on the verge of crying, I wandered aimlessly through the rooms, and there it was….two large packets of some candy called ‘Almond Joy’. It said chocolate (hmmm),  it said coconut ( interested), it said almonds (definitely interested), and it said joy ( smiling now). I popped one in my mouth, then the next one , then another one, and another. I had found my first friend here in the US – the very sweet and joyful, Almond Joy!
This cake has all the elements of the candy in the form of a luscious, melt-in-your-mouth flourless chocolate truffle cake, a moist and sweet coconut topping, and toasted almonds on top. This one sure is a keeper and I know I”ll be making it again, and again, and again!…
