Homemade Almond Joys

Almond Joys are one of my FAVORITE candy bars... It is a very, very dangerous thing that I've figured out how to make them at home. They are WONDERFUL! I pretty much lived off of them for three days (sad but true).

Almond Joys

1/2 c. sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla (real if you have it)
2 c. powdered sugar
1 14 oz bag sweetened coconut
bag chocolate chips
1 T oil

Mix together the sweetened condensed milk, vanilla and powdered sugar. Stir in the coconut. The mixture will be really thick. Press into an 8x8 pan and refrigerate until firm. Once firm, remove from pan and cut into small squares and place on wax paper. Melt the chocolate chips and the oil together in the microwave and stir until smooth. Either dip each square in the chocolate or just drizzle the chocolate over the top and place on wax paper. Press an almond into the top of each while the chocolate is still wet or sprinkle with slivered almonds. Let chocolate set and enjoy! So yummy!!!

Oh, I have been looking for this recipe for a long time (I lost it). Saw your comment on a military wife blog. My husband has been retired from the military for 15 years.
