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.

  26. Diane R. says:

    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!!

  27. Oh yeah! Now this is a definite must do!!!

  28. This cheesecake looks absolutely phenomenal Lyuba! Yum!

  29. I love that you added creamer to your cheesecake! Such a great idea!

  30. Yum! That cheesecake looks amazing and your pictures are great too!

  31. I have just a little over 1 min left til I take this out of the oven and oh my goodness(!!!), it looks AMAZING! Can’t wait to try a piece! Thanks for the recipe!

  32. 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.
