homemade almond joy bites (aka bitty bites)

Because really, we can’t live on cupcakes alone. We need a little health food. We also need alotta joy. And my bitty bites? Yes, they are practically health food and guaranteed to bring a smile to anyone’s face.

The way the toasted coconut adds a tiny crunch to the bigger crunch of the almonds, while enrobed in delicious dark chocolate is well, simply magical {+ gluten free}.

you’ll need:

  • coconut
  • dark chocolate
  • raw almonds
  • vegetable or coconut oil
  • wax paper

the beautiful bitty bites process

  1. toast coconut: put a handful of coconut on a baking sheet and put your broiler on low. This is kind of a “watch it and see” when it’s perfectly brown and toasty.
  2. melt dark chocolate: melt a cup of dark chocolate chips with a splash of oil in the microwave for 60 seconds at a time. stirring in between. once the chips are melted, it’s time.
  3. wax paper: after setting out a strip of wax paper, grab a spoon and start dolloping small spoonfuls of the gooey chocolate on the paper. place 2 almonds and sprinkle with the toasted coconut.
  4. you did it! wasn’t that so easy? aren’t they so yummy!
  5. tip – i like to freeze these, makes them even more crunchy and makes me eat them less when they are stuffed away in the freezer (okay, that’s a lie).
