What You Need:

  • 1 cup chopped macadamia nuts, toasted lightly
  • 1 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1½ tsp almond extract
  • 1 bag (7 oz) sweet shredded coconut
  • 1 bag (12 oz) semisweet chocolate morsels, melted

How to Make It:

  1. Put the macadamia nuts, sweetened condensed milk, almond extract, and sweet coconut in a large bowl and big together with a big spoon.
  2. Form the mixture into bite-sized balls and place on cookie sheets or baking trays.
  3. Put trays in refrigerator to firm up for about 1 hour, or leave at room temperature to firm, which will take about 4 or 5 hours.
  4. When balls have completely set, dip them into the melted chocolate and place them back on the tray to dry at room temperature.
  5. Note – Melt the chocolate easily by placing the morsels in a heat-resistant bowl, then placing the bowl atop a pan of water that has been brought to a boil and removed from stovetop.  Stir until chocolate melts, then remove bowl from hot water and continue stirring until mixture cools slightly; now it's ready to dip.
