How to Make BONNIE'S CHOCOLATE COCONUT ALMOND BALLS
- TOAST ALMONDS IN A SKILLET:
Heat nuts in a dry, heavy skillet over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes or until they're golden brown and they give off a rich, toasty fragrance. Watch them closely when using this method as it's easy to burn them. Stir nuts frequently for even toasting.
Remove from pan to cool.
