“Walnut Joy” Fudge

One of my favorite candies is a Mounds Candy bar … chocolate and coconut – a fabulous combination. I never really fell in love with the Almond Joy because I am not such a huge fan of almonds. However, if there were to be such a candy bar as the “Walnut Joy” I would certainly be eating those daily. For this fudge recipe, I decided to make my own version of a “Walnut Joy” – dark chocolate fudge with coconut and chopped walnuts. Delicious! Very rich, a little sticky, definitely sinful.


12 ounces Hershey’s Dark Chocolate Chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk
About 4 ounces cream of coconut**
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup chopped walnuts


Combine chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and cream of coconut in a large bowl. Microwave for about 2 minutes.  Stir well until smooth. Add shredded coconut and chopped nuts. Spread in a 9×9 pan lined with parchment paper and let chill for 2 or 3 hours. Turn the fudge upside down onto a cutting board, peel away the parchment paper and cut into squares. Store in the fridge after cutting. Enjoy!

** Cream of coconut is not the same thing as coconut milk! Cream of coconut is what you would use to make a pina colada! I found cream of coconut in the baking section of my grocery store but you also might find some in the international food aisle – Goya makes some.
