Yes, you read that right. We took all the deliciousness you’ve come to know and love from some of the best indulgent desserts and made it healthier. BUT we didn’t sacrifice taste! This sweet treat truly tastes like a famous candy recipe you can make at home. It’s such a wonderful combination of sweet, salty, and bitter. We even like to make this recipe as a party favor for our dinner parties and hand out small bags.

Try different versions of the recipe. If you feel like indulging, dip in a milk chocolate ganache and top with coconut while the chocolate is drying. You can even make a swirled dip by melting peanut butter chips with the chocolate chips. As for the almonds used, we’ve also tried this recipe using peanuts, cashews, and macadamia nuts. All of the variations came out delicious, with their own unique flavors.

This Kung Pao Chicken Stir-Fry makes a wonderful main course, and one of our favorite ways to enjoy this quick Asian recipe is by enjoying it in lettuce wrap form!

This flavorful meal can be adjusted to your personal spice preference. If you’re anything like us, you like to add a bunch of spicy Thai peppers to the recipe. Just make sure that you have some ice water or cold milk on hand to help you cool off!
