It is no secret I love CVS and when I found out they had re-launched their Gold Emblem line I couldn’t have been more thrilled! The Gold Emblem line is a great way to get healthy snacks for your family and stay on budget. I ran over to our CVS ( which is only 10 minutes away, yay!) to see what they offered. I was really pleased to see quite a few snacks such as Honey Mustard Pretzels, trail mix, and cookies! incorporates elevated taste standards and ingredient guidelines to exclude MSG and trans fats wherever possible making it safe and healthy. I saw the Gold Emblem Raw Almonds and knew exactly what I was going to do with them! Make the copycat Almond Joys I had been dying to try!
I have a serious love for Almond Joys but candy bars are getting really expensive, so I don’t buy them very often. I make a lot of our candy much to the girls dismay. Let’s just say they never look like they are supposed too. I love this recipe because it is super easy and only takes a few ingredients. You don’t have to be a master candy maker to make them, perfect for me! With the raw almonds I can even make them a tiny bit healthier too!
