Title: Almond Joy Candy
Yield: 1 Servings
Categories: Candies

Ingredients:

1 cn Condensed milk; sweetened
-14 oz
2 oz Chocolate; unsweetened
1/4 ts Salt
1 ts Vanilla
3 c Coconut; shredded
45 Almonds; whole, salted


Preheat oven to 350F. 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 on well
greased baking sheet, 1" apart. Top each with a whole almond. Bake on
middle sheet 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 wax peper covered rack.

These taste a bit like the chocolate bars; hence the name. They freeze
well. from _Heartland: The Best of the Old and the New from Midwest
