Homemade Almond Joys

Candy making is fun to make at home during the holidays.  Especially with few ingredients.  These Homemade Almond Joys are full of soft, chewy coconut filling and super easy to make.  You are going to love the results!   Almond Joys  Almond Joys do taste better than store bought, with rich chocolate, plenty of creamy sweet coconut, and a roasted almond in the center, and they are easier to make than you think. As soon as I saw the recipe for Homemade Almond Joys , I knew they would be going in my Christmas gift boxes this year. I have to say they taste like the real candy in the stores. They are soft and creamy on the inside, and with the bite of the almond and all that coconut, you are in yummyville!!!

Sharing Treats That Go In My Christmas Boxes

In the past few years, I have been making Christmas Boxes with treats in them for our family and friends. I thought I would share some of my family's favorite treats at Christmas . It takes a lot of hours to get them all made before Christmas and then I still miss making some of the treats I wanted to because I run out of time. So I have already started baking to get them ready on time. You can scroll down through the pictures below and click on the title at the end for the recipe. M e r r y C h r i s t m a s !

Pumpkin Butternut Squash Soup

As soon as the pumpkins came out this year, I knew I wanted to make Pumpkin Soup . This is a simple pumpkin soup with the addition of butternut squash that has been roasted.   I came across this recipe for Pumpkin Butternut Squash Soup over at Joy The Baker and liked her combination of the butternut squash along with the pumpkin. As she says, this is a creamy and super healthy soup that can be made in so many directions.
