A rainy Saturday night calls for chocolate in for the form of candy bar loaded with almond butter and stuffed with toasted coconut flakes. How do you spend your weekends? This is a usual weekend for me. I bake, have a glass a wine and edit photos while I watch reruns of Forensic Files. Anyone else obsessed with true crime shows?


These bars are so incredibly easy to make because they have just 5 ingredients (not including toppings) and take just a few minutes to whip up!
