Almond Joy-like Candy
12 ounces Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 ounces Unsweetened Chocolate
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
3 cups Coconut Shreds
1 cup Almonds -- (48 nuts)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In top of double boiler, combine condensed milk,
chocolate and salt.
Cook over rapidly boiling water; stirring often, for 5 to 7 minutes, or till
until mixture thickens.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and coconut.
Form cookies by dropping teaspoons of mixture onto a parchment lined baking sheet, 1" apart. Top each with a whole almond.
Bake on middle shelf of oven for 10-12 minutes, watching cookies carefully after 8-9 minutes, as the bottom can get too brown.
Immediately remove cookies from pan with metal spatula and cool on parchment lined cooling rack.
(These freeze well)
