10 Min


15 Min




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

Directions Step-By-Step

Cover cookie sheets with foil the grease and flour foil; set aside.
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.
