Almond Coconut Squares

Another treat for Thanksgiving: Almond Coconut Squares. Can't go wrong with coconut, chocolate, and almonds!

Another fairly easy dessert to throw together in less than 30 minutes.
This recipe was adapted from Quick Dish

Almond Coconut Squares


1/2 cup oven roasted unsalted almonds (or you could toast your own raw almonds)
6 tbsp corn syrup
3 cups powdered sugar
2 tbsp melted butter
4 cups shredded coconut (I used sweetened but I think I will used unsweetened next time)
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups milk chocolate


Mix together corn syrup, powdered sugar, melted butter, coconut, and vanilla extract. It should be really thick.
Get a small cup of water and dip your fingers into it- then form the coconut minute into small cubes. Place on parchment paper.
Melt chocolate in microwave (15 seconds, stir, 15 seconds, stir, ect, until it's melted.
Dip the bottom of each coconut square into the chocolate and then place chocolate side down back onto the parchment paper.
After all the coconuts have a chocolate bottom, pour/drizzle the rest of the chocolate over all the coconuts. 
Press one almond onto each square.

Cool until chocolate hardens. 

Makes about 30 squares.
