Almond Joy Bark

Almond Joy Bark 7

I bought my first jar of coconut oil recently. It seems to be the new go-to home remedy. Dry skin? Throw on some coconut oil. Want shinier hair? Use coconut oil. Want to lose 20 pounds? Coconut oil.  Want to grow a money tree? Plant a jar of coconut oil. It is a miracle oil for sure. And to think, 2 years ago, I’d never even heard of coconut oil. How did I live without it? I definitely had dry skin, dull hair, extra fat, and less money. Game changer for sure.

Additionally, coconut oil tastes great too. I just love the taste and smell of coconut. To me there is no more summery scent than coconut. Its like eating sunblock. Yum. Summer in a jar. Which reminds me did you know that you can also use coconut oil as sunblock? Miracle oil, indeed. Kelly spotted this recipe and we knew right away we would make it. The only change we made was adding almonds. For the health benefits, of course. If coconut is the miracle oil than almonds are the miracle nut. I think we can all agree that any recipe that contains both coconut oil and almonds must be healthy. No? Well, then lets agree that it is at least tasty. This almond joy bark way exceeded my expectations. Absolutely delicious. Like combining summer and chocolate. What could be better?
