My BFF gave me some treats several weeks ago. They were divine! Rather like a Snickers candy bar, with the something extra special that only hand-made love can incorporate! Well, it got me thinking. What if I changed it from a Snickers to a Mars bar? Switching all the peanut for almond? And maybe throw in some coconut somewhere just for added measure? Heck! Let’s go all the way and MAKE a caramel sauce instead of using wrapped caramels! (I’m not going to lie. I’d sooner weed my whole vegetable garden than un-wrap Kraft caramels. Kraft caramels are awesome, but one year I was in charge of a class treat for one of my kid’s teachers and she requested caramel apples. Well, the kids were too young to open their own caramels so I spent HOURS the night before unwrapping. Nightmare material.) So, back to the caramel.….don’t be afraid! Homemade caramel is your friend! You’ll also need almond butter, which can be pricey, but it’s worth it! Or you could make your own. These are so delicious, and very rich. Don’t cut them too big!
