Almond Joy bites

Christmas is fast approaching and is only days away. Nothing says Christmas like the smell of cookies baking in the oven. You can never get enough Christmas cookies. So far, I have made a double batch of chocolate chip cookies, 3 batches of frosted sugar cookies, candy and almond rice krispies treats and then a giant batch of these delicious almond joy bites! 
Why so many cookies you ask? Well, growing up in a farming family the holidays weren't just a time for us to be with family, but also our extended work family. Whether it was sharing a turkey or ham with employees, a holiday work lunch, or handmade Christmas goodies the holidays were always a time for us to share our appreciation for our employees, too. They spend long hours tending to our farm and truly become part of our families.


I have carried on this tradition for the holiday season and make Christmas cookies for our hard working crews. I like to include almonds when I am baking for our employees so they can literally taste the fruit of their labor. This time I tried making a cookie version of one of my favorite candy bars, almond joy.


Almond Joy bites...I know! They are so easy and fast. But really, these are the easiest cookie I have ever made. They are so fast and only 4 ingredients! How is that possible you say? Well when you are using the most flavorful, delicious 4 ingredients you simply don't need anymore.

So, this Christmas do yourself a favor and add these yummy bites to your cookie list.
 

They will come out of the oven a little gooey still, so let them sit and cool on the sheet for a few minutes. I know you will be tempted to just eat them right out of the oven, but be patient and they will be even better!

Enjoy and have a Merry Christmas!

Until Next Time,
Almond Girl Jenny
