If you love Almond Joy candy bars and can’t get enough of the chocolate-coconut combo, you have GOT to give these a try! They’re actually healthy and come together in no time at all.
Two chocolate recipes in one week?! I must be on some sort of chocolate kick.
Okay, let’s be honest. Really. I’m pretty much always on a chocolate kick. Especially dark chocolate.
The problem is that I’m kind of a chocolate snob. You know how there are beer snobs and wine snobs? Well, I’m a chocolate snob. Any old Hershey’s just isn’t gonna do it for me.
For one, I prefer chocolate that is over 70% cocoa for the ultimate health and antioxidant factor. Plus I’m all about getting deliciously gourmet flavors combined with my super dark chocolate.
Lately, I’ve really been into the chocolate + ginger combo. Another one of my favorites is chocolate + chili. What’s best about that combo is that it can get pretty spicy at times, so you’re really good with just one little square of chocolate and then you’ve had enough. Besides, with dark chocolate, that’s really all you need anyway to satisfy your sweet tooth.
My ultimate favorite chocolate combo will always be chocolate + coconut. All day every day. I can’t get enough of it. Almond Joy candy bars will forever be my favorite. But the only problem is that the chocolate is milk chocolate, and well, call me a chocolate snob, but I’m just not into that so much. And the fact that you only get one little bite of almond in the whole bar. I’d much rather get almond in every bite of my chocolate and coconut mixture.
So I did what any smart foodie would do and I made it exactly the way I wanted it. And I’m hoping you’ll enjoy it my way too. I promise it’s a much better (and healthier!) way.
