I received my Chocolate Mint Jacolate bars in the mail today. I was so excited that I just had to tear into them. I opened the Amazon box, then some plastic wrap, then the case box, then the bar rapper. I could hardly wait to taste this special holiday treat. I took a bite of this dark chocolaty sweet…and was a bit disappointed. I don’t know if all the excitement got to me or what, but I just didn’t think it was as good as some of the others Lara bars I’ve had.
I did do some recipe hunting for treats and found a couple of good ones, like these brown rice crispy treats. I used Maple syrup rather than rice syrup. They are pretty tasty, but mine didn’t hold together very well. I also plan on making these clusters. I want something that really tastes like Christmas though. So I need your ideas. Please send me your favorite real food, budget friendly holiday treats!
