“Outside of coffee and chocolate, I'd have to say my other power pair of flavors is chocolate and coconut! This is a quick and easy way to achieve that in a bar recipe. I prefer chopped almonds instead of walnuts in this recipe - just gives more of a Almond Joy type of feel to it. Feel free to use what style of nut you prefer.”
