Almond Joy Cookies
These cookies taste exactly like an almond joy chocolate bar. Using just five ingredients, you can recreate this delicious candy in a cookie form.
Servings 34 cookies
- 5 cup sweetened coconut flakes
- 2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 3/4 cup roughly chopped almonds
- 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking pad.
In a small bowl, combine the sweetened condensed milk and the vanilla extract. Set aside
In a large mixing bowl combine the coconut flakes, chocolate chips, and chopped almonds. Using a wooden spoon, stir to combine the dry ingredients.
Pour the condensed milk mixture over the coconut mixture. Stir until all of the coconut mixture is completely coated.
Using a 1 1 1/2 tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop out the coconut mixture into slightly wet hands and shape into a ball. Place on the cookie sheet. Slightly press the ball down. Place cookie balls 2 in apart. Remember to keep hands slightly wet to keep the cookie balls from sticking to your hand.
Bake for 12 to 14 minutes.
Remove from the oven and allow to rest on the cookie for 8 to 10 minutes, before moving to a cookie rack.The cookies will be very gooey until they are allowed to cool/set properly and will fall through the slats of the cooling racks.
