Ingredients

  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (14 oz) bag sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1 (12 oz) bag milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup roasted, salted almonds chopped (about the size of the chocolate chips)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and line 3 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper*.
  • In a large mixing bowl, stir together the condensed milk, vanilla extract, almond extract, and salt.
  • Stir in the coconut, milk chocolate, and chopped almonds.
  • Use a small cookie scoop to scoop the dough (really compact the dough into the scoop) onto the prepared baking sheets (12 per sheet).
  • Lightly wet your fingers with water, then shape the cookie dough into round cookies by gently pressing down the tops and pressing in the sides.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 10-15 minutes (I like 12) or until golden brown around the edges.
  • Cool the cookies for 10 mins on the baking sheet before serving.
  • Take 5 seconds to rate this recipe below. We greatly appreciate it!

Notes

*For best results use parchment paper. I normally recommend silicone baking mats, but the cookies stick to it. You can use baking mats if that’s all you have, but you’ll have to work a little to remove the cookies from the mat with a metal spatula.
