Coconut (Almond) Joys

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Karen..

These do not look like Mounds or Almond Joys, but the taste is very similar. I make these every Christmas along with my cookies and they are very easy and quick to make. They are very pretty on a tray when placed in decorated mini muffin liners.

So excellent! I've been searching for this recipe for several Christmas' now. I used to make these every year because I love these things. I never thought of doing the nut half but it works really well - I like it. Thanks for posting the recipe.
