Sharing is caring!

This recipe for decadent Mounds Brownies are from Katrina from In Katrina’s Kitchen; she’s guest posting today and I couldn’t be more excited. If you don’t know her already, you’ll definitely be a new fan – she’s a dessert queen!

Hello there! I’m Katrina from In Katrina’s Kitchen and I’m happy to be here!

Shea was kind enough to offer my reader’s a savory recipe a few weeks back and I thought I would return the favor and give you all something sweet!

I have a specific routine on how to eat an Almond Joy candy- I always bite off the almond first.

Then I feel like I can enjoy my “Mounds bar.” 

Mounds bars have always been a favorite of mine. They are even more special to me now because my son dislikes coconut.

So of course I can keep as many Mounds as I want in the house without the slightest fear of little hands stealing them away from me (and I do!).

Wait – Shouldn’t Almond Joys Be Called Mounds!??

I also have specific memories of being annoyed that Almond Joys were not called Mounds.

I mean they have a “mound” on top of them!

Right? Are you with me?!

Someone along the line messed that one up if you ask me. Of course no one cares what preteen Katrina thinks.
