Almond Joys recipe by moi
2 1/2 (17 1/2 oz. all together) bags grated coconut (you want to make sure that you get the grated coconut because that is what they use in the candy bars.)
3/4 c. powdered sugar
3/4 c. corn syrup
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. almond extract
6 oz. milk chocolate chips (if you would like it to be more like mounds, use dark chocolate.)
the difference between flaked and grated coconut
Keep mixing until the coconut is all compact together, like this.
Spread the coconut mixture in a 9'13 pan using your wooden spoon. If you have a problem with the coconut sticking to the spoon, dip the spoon in water then spread.
Melt the chocolate in a sauce pan on low heat. Spread the chocolate evenly over the top of the coconut mixture. Place the almonds on top. Put them in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes to let them set before you eat them... it might be the longest 20 minutes of your life...
