Anne is my neighbor friend who is training to be a reflexology practitioner at the moment. As we were crossing paths we stopped to give each other a bisous , and then had a quick chat. She mentioned she had just received compliments from her daughter’s teacher on some vegan Bounty bars that she had made and delivered to her the other day. Miam, j’adore les barres de chocolat bounty! — It’s pronounced boonty here.

Anne picked up the cue rather quickly…

…and kindly suggested that the next time she made some she would let me have a taste. Leaping on that opportunity I asked to be there while she made them so I could share this with you folks.

Then she asked me for a favor in return, to be her cobaye — noted, new vocab added to the list (guinea pig)—for her reflexology practice sessions. It seems to me a win-win situation: Bounty treats and a reflexology treatment. Who could say no to that!

Not counting the refrigeration time, this took about 15 minutes to prepare. This is a wonderful treat to prepare with young kids too. Good to keep in mind on a rainy day.
