Heather's Story

A lady at my church made these for snacks for the VBS leaders last summer and I fell head-over-heels for them! They are amazing! So sweet and creamy, they just melt in your mouth!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Yummy! These bars are little slices of pure delight. We can't wait to make them again... and maybe even try experimenting with lemon or orange flavors in place of the almond!

    You are welcome! I hope you get a chance to make them! They are one of my fave desserts and I'm a choco-holic! That's how good these things are! Next time I make them I'm going to try lemon extract!

    I know what you mean. I'm a chocoholic too and when I find a dessert I love that doesn't have chocolate in it - that's saying something. I will definitely try these soon!

    I made this recipe using lemon extract instead of almond and it is good, but I still prefer the almond version! It tastes more rich and decadent! Another flavor I think might taste good is pecan praline flavoring!
