Healthy Almond Joy Candy Spread - Desserts with Benefits

I never thought I’d say this but …  phew …  I would choose this Almond Joy Spread any day over peanut butter!

*flinches*

Oh, I thought you were going to (virtually) punch me for a second there.

This spread is super buttery and creamy, similar to peanut butter, only it’s sweet and full of three amazing flavors:  almond, coconut, and chocolate…  totally unlike peanut butter.  It’s like spreadable dessert!

This is probably definitely the best replacement out there for fruit jellies and jams, cream cheeses, butter, and dare I say, other plain nut butters?  Plus, it’s lower calorie and lower fat (see the nutrition label below)
