Well, were you able to figure it out after my teaser on Friday?

It’s Almond Joy Week!

I have this huge love of Almond Joys. Really, a love of all things coconut.

It’s one of those times in life where you realize your mother was right: your tastes change. See, until two Halloweens ago I hated coconut. Wouldn’t come near it.

Then I tasted an Almond Joy from Jordan’s trick-or-treat basket.

It was love at first sight.

Now I want to put coconut in everything.

I can’t even buy Almond Joys. If I do? I’ll eat the whole package. They’re too easy to eat. Two bites, gone. It’s not fair really.

After I made those Almond Pudding Cookies I was at the store staring at the pudding boxes. {Please tell me I’m not the only one that brainstorms in the Jell-O aisle? Long enough that people get annoyed at you for blocking their way?}

Coconut Cream stood out to me, as does everything coconut these days.

What goes best with a coconut pudding cookie?

That’s right.

Almond Joy. And then my mind started going and I came up with so many ideas. Too many for a week, but I gotta start somewhere.

So it’s Almond Joy week. Three recipes made with or inspired my my favorite candy bar.

{I say it’s my favorite. Then I have a Reese’s. And I change my mind. Just call me a flip-flopper.}

I hope you enjoy!

And if you don’t like coconut? Well…have you tried it recently?

My mom likes to say that your tastes change over time.
