Almond Joy Fudge from JensFavoriteCookies.com - this easy fudge recipe requires only 4 ingredients and 10 minutes!I showed the Fruitarian the pictures of this easy chocolate fudge, and he immediately chimed in with, “Is that available?”

The Fruitarian, for those who don’t know, is my 16 year old son.  I also call him The Hungry One.  And The Chocoholic.  And The Sugar Addicted.  I knew he would be all over that fudge.

However, he has a little problem where he doesn’t like nuts.  It makes me wonder if he was switched at birth.  I couldn’t let an opportunity like this pass me by.

“Of course you can have some fudge.  But there’s a problem.  It has almonds.”
“Well, it also has coconut.”
“But what will you do about the almonds?”
“I think I can suffer through them.”
“You know, I’m going to remember this.”

I think the bigger problem will be keeping his sticky fingers out of the freezer, since I intend to save the bulk of this fudge for Christmas. (See related post: Chocolate Peppermint Fudge)

I’m sure there are plenty of fun and fancy ways to add coconut and almonds to fudge.  (Layers, anyone?)

But seriously, I was having one of those what-can-I-throw-together-in-5-minutes kind of days.  Tell me I’m not alone.

It seems like it’s worse in December.  All that shopping and going to parties and gift-exchanging lunches with friends takes a lot of time, you know.  A girl can’t spend her whole life in the kitchen, can she?  (See related post:  Black and White Fudge)

In the end, I can promise you this takes less than 10 minutes to throw together, and maybe an hour in the fridge to set.  Maybe less.  You could be eating it by the time your favorite tv show is over.

Just be sure to put a few pieces in the freezer BEFORE your teenage son sees that there is fudge in the house!

      I used raw almonds. I bought the package of sliced almonds from the baking aisle. But, it is certainly not a problem if they are roasted! Sounds delicious!

      Starla, that’s very unusual. Are you sure you used sweetened condensed milk, and not evaporated milk? You can try putting it in the fridge or freezer and see if that helps.

        Yes I used sweetened condensed milk. I ended up rolling them into balls and dipping them in melted chocolate and rolling them in ground almonds. They are pretty good but really not what I wanted to do.

    This looks wonderful! I’m planning to grate my own coconut to add to this recipe and I can’t wait to try it! Thanks for sharing!
