Almond Coconut Fudge
Rich smooth chocolate fudge filled with a delicious creamy coconut almond filling. This is sure to be a huge hit! It tastes like you are biting into a fudge version of Almond Joys!
Today’s recipe is pretty special. Almond Coconut Fudge. If you love rich fudge, you will LOVE this recipe.
The filling is a creamy, marshmallowy coconut mixture topped with toasted chopped almonds. It tastes like you are biting into a fudge version of the ever so popular candy bar, Almond Joy.
Almond Joys happen to one of my family’s favorite candy bars so this fudge was a huge home run!
A word of advice for this recipe. The filling can make it difficult to cut into nice squares. Pop this fudge in the freezer for about 15 minutes to let it harden up to make it easier to cut squares. If you notice it still a little bit difficult, just pop it back in for a little bit longer. I promise this fudge is AMAZING!
This would make a unique and delicious neighbor gift for the holidays :)
- ¾ cup almonds, roughly chopped
- ½ cup evaporated milk
- ½ cup sugar
- 12 large marshmallows
- 5 ounces coconut
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- Heat oven to 375 Degrees F.
- Line cookie sheet with foil and spread chopped almonds evenly over the top. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Set aside.
- In a medium sauce pan over medium heat, combine evaporated milk and sugar. Bring to a boil and stir for 4 minutes. Turn heat to low and add marshmallows. Stir until marshmallows are melted. Remove from heat and add coconut. Stir until well blended. Set aside.
- In a medium sauce pan over medium heat combine semi sweet chocolate chips, and milk chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk. Heat until just melted. Remove from heat and add the vanilla.
- Spray 8x8 baking dish with cooking spray. Pour half of the fudge into the baking dish. Pour the coconut filling over the fudge. Sprinkle the nuts over the coconut mixture. Pour the remaining fudge over the top of the nuts.
- Refrigerate for 3 hours before serving.
Looks amazing! I really love that almond filling!

Nikki, this looks absolutely amazing! I can practically taste it. I will have to make this!
If the Almond Coconut Fudge is hard to cut into nice squares; line the baking dish with foil with an overlap on all four sides so that when it is cooled, you can lift it out and instead of using a knife to cut it try using a large pizza cutter and it should cut it nicely. I use a pizza cutter to cut sliced cheese stacked about 5 or 6 slices tall and it sure cuts it better than a knife.
I appreciate this tip! About to make my 5th batch and hope that will help.
I recommend using almond butter and omit the almond extract. It tastes really good. It came out really delicious, thanks a lot for sharing :)
You could put in mini festive paper cups!
I made this and although it was delicious, my coconut filling was not as thick as yours shown. What did I do wrong? Really want to make again so looking forward to reply. Thanks!
This'll be perfect for a Christmas treat on food day!!
This looks delicious and I am saving it to my Pinterest board to make soon! If I have trouble cutting it, I will just use a small scoop and scoop it out into balls and put in a mini muffin cup! I can't rate the recipe yet because I haven't made it yet but the picture gets 5 stars!
large marshmallows - first there are miniature, then the "regular" sized, then the huge ones. Are we talking about "regular" sized, or the "huge" ones?
