Almond joy candy

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 can Condensed milk; sweetened 14 oz
2 ounces Chocolate; unsweetened
¼ teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Vanilla
3 cups 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 Kitchens_
