Sweetsister01Chocolate Coconut Almond Jewels
5 oz sweetened condensed milk
1 t vanilla
2 C powdered sugar
14 oz shredded or flaked coconut
24 oz semisweet chips
1 cup whole dry roasted almonds
Blend the condensed milk and the vanilla. Add the powdered sugar a little at a time until smooth.
Stir in the coconut. The mixture should be firm.
Pat the mixture firmly into a Greased 9 x 13 x 2 inch pan. Chill in the refrigerator until quite firm.
In a double boiler over hot (not boiling) water, melt the chocolate, stirring often.
Remove the coconut mixture from the refrigerator and cut into 1 x 2 inch bars.
Put 2 whole almonds atop each bar.
Set each coconut bar onto a fork and dip it into the chocolate. Tap the fork against the side of the pan or bowl to remove any excess chocolate. Place on waxed paper lined tray to Set.
