How to Make Almond Joy Candy

Step-by-Step

  1. Blend the condensed milk and vanilla. Add the powdered sugar to the above mixture a little at a time, stirring until smooth. Stir in the coconut. The mixture should be firm. Pat the mixture firmly into a greased 9x13x2-inch pan. Chill in the refrigerator until firm. In a double boiler over hot, not boiling water, melt the chocolate, stirring often. You may also use a microwave. Remove the coconut mixture from the refrigerator and cut it into 1x2-inch bars. Put 2 whole almonds atop each bar. Set each coconut bar onto a fork and dip it into the chocolate. Tap the fork against the side of the pan or bowl to remove any excess chocolate. Air dry at room temperature on waxed paper for several hours. You may speed up the process by putting in the refrigerator for 30 minutes
