Quite possibly one of the most delicious things I’ve ever eaten in my entire life. Imagine if you will, plunging your spoon through a crispy layer of caramelized sugar to expose a silky layer of frozen creme brulee ice cream beneath. Oh yea baby, this recipe is worth every single calorie-laden bite. Break out the kitchen torch! Your family and friends are going to flip over this one.
These gluten free Chocolate Almond Joy Bars were inspired by Carrie of GingerLemonGirl.com who wrote a recipe for Almond Joy Impossible Pie. Who doesn’t like the combination of chocolate, almonds and coconut in the form of a high protein, gluten free treat?
Just kidding! It’s neither gourmet nor fancy. In fact, it’s one of the simplest treats you can possibly make. But it’s yummy and you can serve it soft and fluffy (like mousse) or refreeze it for more of an ice cream-like texture. Or put it in a graham cracker crust and turn it into a pie!
I learned this recipe from a fellow soccer mom and am so glad I gave it a whirl.
Why do I like to serve these popsicles to my boys and their friends? First, they contain high protein almond butter, second, they’re full of anti-oxidant rich unsweetened cocoa powder and finally, they’re fruit sweetened. Here’s my version of Amy’s recipe, I hope you like it as much as the boys and their friends did.
