Whoa, this is a combination that we can’t (won’t) pass by. July 8th is dedicated to the combination of milk chocolate and almonds. The first thing that comes to our mind is, of course, the classic Hershey’s with Almond’s chocolate bar. For those of us that love this duo, this candy bar is simply bliss.
If you’d like to get a bit fancy today, here’s a recipe for you from That Creative Mom Cooks!
