Mounds Bars and Almond Joys have always been some of my favorite candy bars.
I remember being a kid and standing in the candy aisle trying to decide which one I wanted and then I would eagerly enjoy my pick, all the while thinking maybe I should have gotten the other…
(Which reminds me… WHY do they not make a pack with one piece Mounds and one piece Almond Joy for the indecisive among us like me?!)
Needless to say, I was so excited when I found this idea for homemade Mounds Bars and even more excited at how I could enjoy them without all the guilt!
This is a super easy, delicious little recipe… and the result is quite a bit healthier than you might expect!
You could actually take these quite a bit further into the healthy-zone, but I am happy right smack dab here in the middle.
(And of COURSE, you can substitute milk chocolate for the dark and stick an almond on top if Almond Joy is how you roll!!)
