If you’re like me, you can’t say no to a Almond Joy or Mounds bar. These cookies (which can also be made into a bar) feed that hankering for the candy bar that takes you to the beach.
Things you will need:
- A preheated oven to 325F.
- 14 oz bag of sweetened coconut flakes
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
Optional: 2/3 cup chooped lightly salted almonds
How to make:
Combine all your ingredients in a bowl. No specific way, but I did wait until the end to add in the sweetened condensed milk.
Once mixed together, place on a baking sheet for cookies or dump whole mixture into pan for bars. For cookies, I used a small ice cream scoop and with the bars I lined the pan with parchment paper. Bake cookies for 12 minutes and then press them down with a glass when they come out of the over. For bars, bake for about 30-35 minutes depending on how brown you want them to be.
