Almond Joy Cheesecake Recipe

Ever wish that you could turn your favorite candy bar into a perfect dessert? I do! My favorite is Almond Joy. This Almond Joy Cheesecake is the perfect version of that candy bar and perfect to serve on Valentine’s day! I am sharing this cheesecake recipe with you today. Let me hear some “Whoo-Hoo”!

I love getting inspired by everything around me. Remember my Layered Creme Brulee Cheesecake? That was one of the best cheesecakes that I’ve ever made and it was an inspiration cheesecake as well. This time I was inspired by the International Delight coffee creamer. When I saw that they had Almond Joy creamer, I just had to make a cheesecake with it. I have a special weakness for Almond Joy.

    I am making this right now, and the butter from the crust leaked all over the bottom of my oven and set off the smoke alarm! I would recommend wrapping the edges of the springform pan in foil and/or baking the cheesecake on a cookie sheet to prevent this from happening. Also, 1-1/2 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk didn’t seem to be enough. I kept adding the milk until it seemed like a good consistency.

    I can’t wait until this is done & chilled so I can devour a piece. The cheesecake batter was sure tasty!

      That is a good suggestion, Diane! I’ve never had that happen to me with my spring form, so I didn’t even think of putting it on a cookie sheet. The sweetened condensed milk was just used to stick the coconut flakes together, but go for it, if you like it! :)
      Enjoy!!

    Coffee creamer is a cook/bakers best friend, can be used for many things. Makes awesome gravies. I have used it for years, and so right about the flavored ones they also make great pancakes and waffles. Will be making this cheesecake looks awesome.

    Avoid showering or shaving for up to 24 hours or session, to allow the tanning pigments to set.
    However, due to the popularity of spray tans, more competition is available as well as reasonable and affordable rates.

    If you choose to spray tan yourself, do it away from whatever you
    don’t want to stain. It typically requires one to six hours for
    the tanning solution to be totally absorbed. The side effects of dihydroxyacetone are minimal because it stays in the outermost
    layer of epidermis. Keep your budget in mind,
    especially if you’re new to fake tanning products.
    Moisturising your skin delays your skin from flaking off, prolonging the amount of time your
    tan remains on your skin. Start from the bottom half of your body working your way up
    the upper half. Sunless tanning came into the
    picture when the harmful effects of ultraviolet rays of the
    sun were discovered and people started fearing overexposure to it.
    She said that was no longer necessary because I was in their computer.

    I was online looking for a cheesecake recipe that I could substitute my almond joy creamer in and found that you had already done all the work! I’m so excited to try this today! Thanks!

        Hi again! I made this last night and we all loved it! It was the perfect “richness”, and looked amazing. My few changes: I used coconut extract in the cheesecake instead of vanilla. After tasting the creamer, I decided it needed that extra boost of coconut. I also used the creamer in the coconut topping instead of sweetened condensed milk. LOVED it and will make it again! Thanks!

  9. Cheesecakedelight says

    How much sweetend condensed milk do you recommend when mixing it with the coconut flakes for a topping on the cheesevake?
