One last candy recipe before Christmas is here, a holiday recipe for chocolate bark Christmas trees with almonds and coconut filling!
Ok, so originally, I was hoping for more of an “Almond Joy” feel to these little treats, but instead they're more like an “Almond Joy” chocolate bark. No mind, though, because they were still a hit, especially with my oldest, who happens to be my harshest critic.
To make these candy trees, I used this Wilton Bite Size Tree Mold. Below is a printable recipe for these festive sweet treats. Enjoy!

Chocolate Covered Almond Coconut Trees
- 4 tablespoons salted butter
- 1/2 cup coconut shredded
- 1/3 cup marshmallow cream
- 12 whole Almonds
- 10 ounces dark chocolate melting wafers
- Melt chocolate candy coating according to package directions.
- Next, melt butter and mix with coconut flakes and marshmallow cream, forming a soft, sticky filling for the trees.
- Add small amount of chocolate to candy mold, covering bottom of each candy space. Add one almond on top of chocolate; then add small amount of coconut filling (about a teaspoon), covering each almond. Cover with chocolate candy coating.
- Chill candy trees in freezer until set. Pop out of mold and enjoy!
