  1. I heard someone call Almond Joy the worst halloween candy, and for the rest of the day, I thought about how insane that person must be! This homemade version looks delicious!!! Plus you can use better quality chocolate when you make them yourself!! I love Almond Joy bars (except for the too-sweet waxy chocolate), so these look like something I could eat an entire batch of! Although, I don’t know if thats a good thing or not;)
