Why I Love This Recipe

I got this off a web site a couple years ago and it has became a favorite of my family and friends.

I want to share this because i think it would make a great christmas gift

Ingredients You'll Need

2 (16-ounce) boxes confectioners' sugar

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened

1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

1 teaspoon pure almond extract

1 (14-ounce) package shredded coconut

1 1/2 cups chopped nuts

1 (12-ounce) package chocolate chips


Cream together sugar and butter in a bowl; add milk. Stir in almond extract, coconut, and nuts; mix well. Form candy into 1-inch balls. Place on waxed paper and refrigerate at least 3 hours. Melt chocolate in top of double boiler, stirring well. Remove from heat but allow chocolate to remain over hot water. (If chocolate becomes too thick, return to heat for a minute or so to thin). With a toothpick, dip each ball in chocolate and place on waxed paper until set.
