I think would like some "80% Dark Chocolate Reeses Almond Butter Cups" or "Dark Chocolate Bacon M+Ms".

saw this comment under a different topic Fake Nutella: 2/3 full jar of Coconut Oil 1/4-1/3 c almond butter, just for the nutty flavor 2-3 TBS 100% high quality cocoa powder, get the good stuff 1-2 tsp honey, just enough to sweeten slightly, but you should taste the nut and chocolate before any sweetness. Mix well and store in fridge. When you have emotional cravings, or need an afternoon snack, a spoonful does the trick. I also find it tastes more "naughty" and therefore I need less to satisfy my cravings. link|flag answered Jun 25 2011 at 3:23 Marie

wow awesome Food Lovers, that last glamour shot with the almond butter melting out makes my morning mega omelette less interesting!

Yep, gotta agree with Amanda. We did exactly that for our blog, minus the coconut oil in the chocolate (Mark Sisson put our recipe in his Link Love last weekend). Definitely a tasty treat - You can see our version with photos here: http://www.primal-palate.com/2010/10/dark-chocolate-almond-butter-bites.html

If they would just downsize the sugar load on the reese's, they would be a lot better. I could live with all natural peanut butter with no sugar and then dark chocolate on the outside.

This makes me want to change my answer! I've had some pretty amazing wild blueberries here in Maine over the years, but you reminded me of my perpetual pining for the blackberries that grew near my house as a kid. Absolute perfection and superior (even back then) to any candy bar.

I would love an authentic tasting reeses cup. None of the fakes do it for me... But I may still try! Definitely not having a real one. it just seems repulsive to me now.

I've mixed melted dark chocolate with coconut oil and put a bit in an ice cube tray in the freezer to harden (about 1/3 of the way up), then put some almond butter in and topped it with more of the choco mixture and put it back in the freezer. Pop them out and enjoy!

A darker cleaner version of an almond joy.

Looks like I'm not alone. A quick search revealed this.

i was once hiking in europe, many years ago, and stumbled upon some mountain blueberries.

without exaggeration, i can say they were the most sublime thing i've ever eaten. i had them that afternoon on a mountainside meadow, picking them laboriously as fast as i could, and that evening at a campside restaurant, folded into some impossibly thin crepes. that was it - twice in one day, and never since.

in my fantasy hallowe'en, someone offers me a pint of them.

Paleo'ed Toblerone? Or Terry's chocolate orange or chocolate raspberry orange?? Milka? Cote D'Or dark chocolate toffees?

Guess European chocolate remade as paleo as possible is my theme here.
