Almond Joys

Ingredients

  • 5 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 14 ounces shredded or flaked coconut
  • 24 ounces milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup whole dry roasted almonds

Instructions

  1. Blend the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract. Add the confectioners' sugar to the mixture a little at a time, stirring until smooth. Stir in the coconut. The mixture should be firm. Pat the mixture firmly into a greased 9 x 13 x 2-inch pan.
  2. Chill in the refrigerator until firm.
  3. In a double boiler over hot, not boiling water, melt the chocolate, stirring often. You may also use a microwave. Remove the coconut mixture from the refrigerator and cut it into 1 x 2-inch bars. Put 2 whole almonds atop each bar. Set each coconut bar onto a fork and dip it into the chocolate. Tap the fork against the side of the pan or bowl to remove any excess chocolate.
  4. Air dry at room temperature on wax paper for several hours. You may speed up the process by putting in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
