Bonnie Jean's Coconut Mini Mountains
- 28 oz
- (2 cans -14 oz. ea.) eagle brand sweetened condensed milk
- 1 lb
- flaked coconut (about 5 c. not packed)
- 2 c
- cut up of ground walnuts
- 6 Tbsp
- baking cocoa
- 1 tsp
- vanilla extract
- 1 tsp
- almond extract
- 1/2 tsp
- red food coloring, optional
Mix together in a large bowl the coconut and cocoa, then add all remaining ingredients.
Drop onto prepared cookie sheets by the Tablespoonful and slightly flatten. Bake in 325^ oven for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown Remove from baking sheets immediately; If they spread apart squish together- the coconut will hold together.( I always squish them anyway) Cool on wire rack. Store loosely covered at room temperature.
If desired, decorate mounds with 1/2 red or green cherries before baking.
