Happy Birthday to my Dad!

Happy Birthday to my Dad!
He has the biggest heart of anyone I know and is a wonderful father and grandfather.

I happened to see a recipe recently on Pinterest for almond joy brownie bites (http://www.confessionsofacookbookqueen.com/2011/04/almond-joy-brownie-bites/)

and pinned it. Then I remembered that my Dad loves almond joy bars. So I had to give the recipe a try and they were a huge hit! Since I’m not used to making brownie bites, I didn’t realize how fast they cooked so they were in the oven a tad longer than they should have been. But they are the cutest things ever and a perfect sized snack. I could hardly keep the kids away from them…until I put the coconut on…I don’t know about everyone else’s kids, but mine won’t go near coconut. But they were worth it thanks to a fairly easy, budget-friendly recipe (a total of $7…I already had enough almonds on hand since you only need 1 for each bite). And of course they were fun to make…who doesn’t love dipping things into CHOCOLATE?!


Here is a picture of this treat – I am realizing I need to brush up on my photography skills (ok I need to learn a lot) so that I can post great pictures of my products!  I HAD to take a bite so that you could see what makes it so delicious. The best bite is the very center, where you get brownie, coconut, chocolate, and the crunchy almond! As Rachael would say “YUM-O!”

So, Dad, ENJOY!!!
