Coconut Almond Black and Whites

I do love contrast--both in color and flavor.  I think these black and white treats are really awesome! Very rich and wonderful right out of the freezer. Being based on coconut oil, they will melt in your fingers a bit, especially in the summer heat, so be sure to keep them cold! They are really pretty though, and look great on the stand I just made out of burner covers from the Dollar Tree. (Yep, it is summer and I have time to indulge the crafter in me)

24 ought to be enough to satisfy a sweet tooth for quite a while! I don't have to think about dinner tonight because we have buy one get one free salads at our favorite pizza place. What to do with all the extra time--except to make these of course!

These treats are so pretty! I love having another option for coconut oil too.

I was JUST going to say what Joan did, that I am always on the look out for ways to use coconut oil. I love stuff I can make and keep in the freezer, only taking out what is needed at the time. I'll definitely be trying these. Thanks!

Oh, and the little tower tray is cute... I never would have guessed how it was made, LOL!
