Do you love Almond Joys? Well you're going to want to make large batches of these little bites of heaven!
Makes 2-1/2 dozen
1-3/4 cups confectioners sugar
1-3/4 cup flaked coconut
1 cup chopped almonds
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
2 cups (12oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 Tbsp shortening
In a large bowl, combine the sugar, coconut, almonds and milk.
Shape into 1" balls.
Layer on a cookie sheet and refrigerate until firm, about 20 minutes.
Melt the chocolate chips and shortening in the microwave.
Stir until smooth.
Dip the balls into the chocolate, allowing the excess to drip off.
Place on waxed paper and let stand until set.
Store in an airtight container.
