DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper that has been lightly greased.
  • In the microwave, melt the chocolate with the sweetened condensed milk, stirring after every minute of cook time. Microwave cook times vary; you know your oven better than I do, so no specific cook times; just until melted and smooth.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture over the coconut in a large bowl. Stir in the vanilla. Mix well until the coconut is completely coated.
  • Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet. Top each cookie with an almond, pressing down slightly.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for ten to twelve minutes. Check at about 8 minutes though as the bottoms tend to burn easily. Double panning is a good idea if they still seem doughy but bottoms are done.
  • Let cool on pan for one minute, then transfer to cooling rack and cool completely.
