Almond Joy Breakfast Bowl

Are you a coffee drinker? I am and I’ll admit that I am one of those coffee drinkers who disguise their coffee with sugar and flavored coffee creamers (of all flavors)! I recently bought International Delights Almond Joy flavored creamer for the first time and the combination of chocolate, almond and coconut is addicting & inspiring. The craving for MORE of this trifecta of flavors led to the creation of this breakfast bowl and saved me a trip to the store to purchase the candy bar at 7 o’clock in the morning!

  1. Renae,
    What a great idea to top your breakfast with the ‘almond joy’ combo – love those flavors! I’m not much of a grits kind of girl, but I bet this would be good on yogurt or granola cereal, too!
