Almond Joy brownies are pretty much the best thing since the candy bar. And the perfect way to use up those mini Almond Joy Bars you might have hanging around after Halloween!
Looking back on my life, I realize that I’ve made some pretty big mistakes in the past.
My liberal use of frosted white eye shadow, for one. What was that all about? Who on earth decides, “oh yes, let’s cover our eyelids from top to bottom in shiny bright white powder. That will look absolutely amazing.”
Honestly, I blame Paula Abdul. No one else could have convinced me that such a thing was a good idea.
Another mistake? Sour Apple Pucker. I see that stuff now as I pop in the liquor store for my bottle(s) of wine and my stomach immediately begins turning. Young adults of the world, if you’ve never listened to a thing I say, listen to this: Nothing good comes from an evening that involves Sour Apple Pucker. Nothing.
And shoulder pads. Good grief, why? Why did those ever exist? And even worse, WHY ARE THEY MAKING A COMEBACK? Trust me when I say that some parts of our bodies are meant to be padded. Shoulders are not one of them. Unless you are involved in athletics, please step away slowly and take your Apple Pucker with you.
Nuts in a candy bar basically negate all the negative calories because hello, they come from nature. These days I’m all about Snickers with Almonds, Hershey Bars with Almonds, Almond M&Ms… and Almond Joy.
With all these almonds I’m eating lately, I’m just waiting for all the weight to start falling off of me. It’ll happen, I just know it!
These rich, yummy brownies are packed full of Almond Joy chunks and topped off with a sweet coconut almond glaze. I love the moistness that the coconut filling from the candy bars added to the brownies.
You’ve got to try these. They’re pretty incredible!
