Almond Joy Chocolate Bark

AlmondJoyBark2

Here is a little story about me having a bad craving for a Mounds bar.

“It was Halloween night and my mother and I headed on over to Lisa’s house. She always invites us each year and has just become a great tradition. She is a great friend! Well I woke up that morning with an urge of wanting a Mounds bar. My taste buds have changed over the years and I use to not be able to stand coconut. Now I love it and I love it even more if chocolate is involved. So I had a plan to take a Mounds bar from one of the kids treat or treat loot. I even asked before hand and they said of course because they didn’t like coconut. HAH I use to be the same way!! Hours passed and finally they came back. We dumped the bags out and no Mounds!! I saw many Almond Joys but no Mounds. I eventually settled for an Almond Joy because I was still getting my coconut/chocolate craving solved. Although in the back of my mind, I still wanted a Mounds.”

So here I am today. I came across an amazing recipe from Elana’s Pantry called Almond Joy Chocolate Bark. Because it was Halloween I would enjoy pieces of certain chocolate, but on a normal day I don’t typically go for those process pieces of chocolates because I much rather have a nice piece of really good dark chocolate. Plus all the extra sugar and corn syrup nasty stuff, I’m not a fan! After I found this recipe on Elana’s Pantry I became more content because she also has a recipe for Mounds, which I can’t wait to try later on! Apparently was also obsessed with Almond Joy and Mounds too. I’m glad I’m not alone! ;)

This bark was so easy to put together. I can’t believe I didn’t think about it before. Now whenever I have an urge for an Almond Joy or Mounds, this will be my go to recipe, Almond Joy Chocolate Bark.

This would be so dangerous for me to have in the house... I don't think I would share with anyone.
