Vanilla Almond Crunch

Enough for a Vanilla Thriller Prep Time 10 minutes   Rated:


I am not going to lie. This is just as difficult as it looks. (KIDDING!) It is actually nowhere near as difficult as it looks and it is sooo delish that all of the effort is completely worth it.

I believe this layer of the Vanilla Thriller is stand alone as a fudge or something akin to it. So go ahead. Make it, chill it and eat it. But don't leave here without first committing to me that you will make the entire slice sooner or later. I cannot wait to see your efforts on social media; K?
