It’s no secret for anyone who knows me that I am a chocolate girl when it comes to sweets. I have no problem passing up a Sour Patch Kid or Cherry flavored gummi bear. But pass a piece of chocolate in front of my face and it’s all but certain to be gone in a heartbeat. Or a mouth smack.
My favorite birthday cake for years has been German chocolate cake. Each year my mom would pull out the bundt pan and bake up my yearly request. It’s probably the reason I’m such a fan of anything with almonds, nuts and goo. Almond Joys and Snicker bars are my go to selections if I have my druthers.
When I was asked to create a recipe for something served up in a jar Go Bold With Butter, I put myself in my summertime shoes, aka flip flops, and envisioned myself at the beach. What would I most crave besides an ice cold beer and sushi while I sit on my pretend blanket digging my toes into the pretend warm sand.
