Almond Joys/Mounds Clone
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
14 ounces shredded coconut
1 cup whole toasted almonds
1 bag chocolate chips (milk for Almond Joy, semisweet for Mounds)
Mix together the first 3 ingredients. With your hands, roll the mixture into 1-inch balls. Stick an almond in each one for Almond Joy. Melt chocolate in microwave-safe dish, stirring after every 30 seconds or so. Dip the balls in melted chocolate and place on foil-covered baking sheet. Chill until firm.
This is another one of those not-so-healthy recipes that I tend to share but then again, we tend to give away most of the treats we make anyway!
