Certain flavors simply just belong together. Little matches made in heaven that should not be tampered or messed with. Coconut and chocolate are one of those combinations that will never get old and always taste amazing together under any and all circumstances.
Last week, I was browsing Pinterest again (damn that site and all of the ideas & food porn) and came across these little “Almond Joy” bites and wanted to lick my screen. Literally, I think I stared at them for a couple of minutes and drooled a little bit. These particular ones weren’t necessarily that “unhealthy” per se but I knew I could come up with a different version that had a better nutritional profile for myself and where my macros as while I’m cutting. I haven’t had a real Almond Joy bar in years, BUT these little nuggets of heaven I made hit the spot. Bonus that they are actually very good for ya! Need a sweet fix? The perfect little bite can be found right here if you love coconut and chocolate.
This is what they looked like before the chocolatey goodness…
I could easily eat them just like this… by why do that when you can make them even more delicious?
Excuse the condensation on them from the fridge… I couldn’t stop nibbling on them the day I made them so I had to put them away momentarily to photograph a couple of days later! I really do need to start blogging my recipes the same day I make and photograph them, it’s always torture seeing everything again here and NOT having any left!
