Homemade Joy

So yesterday I was having a sweet craving. I really did not want to go get something from the store. I was browsing Facebook and the Velata page talked about making some Almond Joy style candies.

I love almonds just not in my chocolate. So I call my version just Joy.

Homemade Joy:
1 cup sweetened Coconut flakes
sweetened condensed milk
Velata Caramel Milk Chocolate
Velata Milk Chocolate

So in my Kitchen Aid mixer I put in the coconut flakes and started mixing. Then I opened the sweetened condensed milk and poured just enough in to give it a good coating. No measuring.

Then I wet my hands (that stuff is sticky). I formed balls and put them on wax paper and placed them in the fridge. After about an hour, long enough for the them to harden up, I took them out and dipped them in the warmed chocolate. After placing them back on the cookie sheet I placed them in the fridge for about an hour.

Result:
DELISH!!!!

My family is not HUGE coconut fans but they liked this treat.
