As far as candy bars go, Almond Joy were always one of my favorites. This tart tastes exactly like an Almond Joy, so I loved it. Larry? Not so much. He’s not a picky eater at all, but coconut is definitely not one of his favorite things. The recipe makes six small tarts, perfect for company. They’re really pretty and even though there are a lot of steps involved, they’re still pretty easy to make.
The recipe calls for white chocolate in the filling, and a mixture of milk and dark chocolates on top. I used high quality chocolates: Amano white, Michel Cluizel milk and Valrhona dark. There’s not much else to the filling besides a bit of rum and the coconut, so quality of ingredients counts here.
