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.
Always coconut and chocolate,
