Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

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)
