  • 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.
