If you’re looking for easy Christmas candy recipe’s, be sure to try this one. It’s quick and fun to make with the kids and they taste great. I mix these in with peanut butter balls in a plastic baggie( tied with festive ribbon )and use as a stocking stuffer. Don’t forget to leave some for Santa!
You will need :
Cookie sheet ( do NOT grease )
2 squares unsweetened chocolate ( 2 ounces )
1 can condensed milk
1-3/4 to 2 cups flaked coconut
3/4 cup chopped pecans ( substitute walnuts )
1/2 tsp vanilla or almond extract ( optional )
Heat oven to 350*
Melt chocolate completely on very low heat…stir constantly, it doesn’t take long. Remove from heat and stir in condensed ( not evaporated ) milk, pecans and coconut. Add vanilla or almond extract if using.
Use a teaspoon to drop mix on to cookie sheet. Place in oven and turn oven OFF immediately…let candy stay in oven at least 15 minutes. It will have a glazed look when done. Remove from cookie sheet with small spatula and cool completely before serving or storing. Enjoy!
