Oh Almond Joy!

Anything that’s recreating a candy bar at home I have to try. Finding this recipe was no exception. I found this recipe on a blog, who took the recipe from another blog.

I had a bag hanging around that I wanted to use. Plus, several of the comments on the other blog were about the difficulty finding unsweetened coconut. Apparently you have to go to a gourmet organic type store for it…which I’m not going to do.  So, I thought I’d just try the sweetened kind.
