  Categories: Candies
       Yield: 1 servings
  
       1 cn Condensed milk; sweetened
            -14 oz
       2 oz Chocolate; unsweetened
     1/4 ts Salt
       1 ts Vanilla
       3 c  Coconut; shredded
      45    Almonds; whole, salted
  
   Preheat oven to 350F. In top of double boiler, combine
   condensed milk, chocolate and salt. Cook over rapidly
   boiling water; stirring often, for 5 to 7 minutes, or
   till until mixture thickens. Remove from heat and stir
   in vanilla and coconut. Form cookies by dropping
   teaspoons of mixture on well greased baking sheet, 1
   apart. Top each with a whole almond. Bake on middle
   sheet of oven for 10-12 minutes, watching cookies
   carefully after 8-9 minutes,as the bottom can get too
   brown. Immediately remove cookies from pan with metal
   spatula and cool on wax peper covered rack.
   
   These taste a bit like the chocolate bars; hence the
   name. They freeze well. from _Heartland: The Best of
