Better than Almond Joy!

A mid-day hankering for an Almond Joy led me to create this copykat recipe.

I enjoyed every minute of making this as I had to taste both the coconut middle and the chocolate outside coating to make sure the sweetness was just right. Oh the benefits of being the cook.

This is the bottom
After 30 minutes in the freezer I flipped it
Added almonds on top
Poured remainder of the chocolate over the almonds and topped it with course sea salt
I freeze these for whenever I have another hankering for an Almond Joy!

These are Fantastic!

Ranch chicken cheddar soft pretzel!

I literally just made this up with what I had in my freezer

I came home from my walk on Sunday morning and chicken flatbread pizza was calling my name. However, after checking and rechecking my freezer, there was no flatbread to be found. So I had to get creative. Soft pretzels, course salt, chicken, cheddar cheese, and ranch dressing, that’s it! This was SO delicious with a broccoli slaw salad, dried cranberries, apples and italian dressing on the side.
