Come summertime, I like having recipes on hand that are easy enough for the boys to make on their own. (I’ll send one in from the garden to start supper while the other helps me finish up.) Not having to fire up the oven is also a very good thing. We took the basic No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars recipe and swapped out the powdered sugar with honey (you can use more or less to taste) and added some oat bran for extra hardiness. The whole family gives them a thumbs up, and my youngest enjoys beating on the graham crackers to crush them.
I used to enjoy mounds and almond joy bars years ago, but either they’re making them sweeter and more bland, or my taste buds have changed (or both). Enter this easy recipe set for homemade mounds bars and almond joy bars. You get the rich, full taste of coconut and chocolate, without the cloying sweetness of commercial candy. Make them with coconut and vanilla extracts for homemade mounds bars, or almond and vanilla extracts (and almonds! ) for homemade almond joy bars. There’s plenty of healthy coconut oil, and they’re sweetened only with honey.Did you know? At the bottom of every post there is a little button that looks like a printer.
