hi my name is taylor, and if you don’t know by now, i am a candy addict.
chocolate addict. nut butter, sweets, sugar, chocolate, nut butter..
you get the point.
and if i kept that ‘ish in the kitchen at all times, i would crush the entire bag, easily.
sooooooooo i just gotta step my game up and get super creative when i feel a craving coming on for a specific candy/sweet! because ain’t no one got time to crush an entire bag of candy.
one of my top 10 favorite candies is mounds and almond joys.
i mean the crunch of the almond…. the warmth of the chocolate, the sweetness of the coconut. sigh.
i used to keep a bag of them in the freezer and would pop them in my mouth
a few times once a day, which can add up big time! and my macros weren’t so happy with this process!!
so if you’re and almond joy lover, get ready for these bad boys, because they are GUARANTEED to make that sweet tooth happy, along with that bikini bod!!!
