Almond Joy Frosting

A few weeks ago, while I was grocery shopping, I spotted this new frosting. Betty Crocker Peter Paul Almond Joy Frosting.  I heard it calling my name, “Lynn, try me, try me. You know you want too!” And I did! Hershey’s Best Brownie recipe immediately came to mind. There is nothing I like more than a pan of brownies, and frosted brownies, Oh boy! I decided to make a pan of brownies and frost them with this “new” frosting.

Let me tell you, this frosting is absolutely delicious and highly addictive. When I started eating this frosting by the spoonfuls, right out of the container, I knew this frosting was going to be dangerous! One of my biggest weakness is a pan of frosted brownies. One of my favorite candy bars is an almond joy. Which simply means one thing, this frosting spells: T-R-O-U-B-L-E!
