Recipe: Almond Joy Coconut Cheesecake

Summary: If you like Almond Joy candy bars like I do, I’m betting that you will love this cheesecake! It is loaded with almonds and coconut. I toasted the coconut, and it adds great flavor and crunch. It is also in the crust, which adds another depth of flavor. I added extra to the top for garnish, but that is totally optional.

Ingredients

    • Crust:
    • 1 1/2 cups finely crushed Oreo crumbs (I use my food processor)
    • 1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 1/4 cup melted butter
    • Filling:
    • 4 8oz pkgs cream cheese, softened to room temperature
    • 1 1/2 cups sugar
    • 4 eggs
    • 1 tsp almond extract
    • 1/2 tsp coconut extract
    • 1/2 tsp vanilla
    • pinch of salt
    • 1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut, toasted and cooled
    • 1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted and cooled
    • Topping:
    • 6 Tbsp cream
    • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
    • 1/2 tsp vanilla
