    MMMMM----- Recipe via Meal-Master (tm) v8.06

    Title: Almond Joys
    Categories: Five, Candy, Chocolate, Nuts
    Yield: 12 Candies

    3/4 c Dry unsweetened flaked
    - coconut
    3/4 c Sweetened flaked coconut
    3 tb Light corn syrup *
    12 Whole, unsalted, roasted
    - almonds
    6 oz Bittersweet (60% cocoa)
    - chocolate, coarse chopped

    In a medium bowl, combine unsweetened and sweetened coconut.
    Stir in light corn syrup and mix to combine (tip: use your
    hands to ensure even mixing). If mixture appears dry (or has
    trouble sticking together) add additional corn syrup, 1 tsp
    at a time. Shape coconut mixture into 1-inch balls, then
    flatten to form 1/2 inch x 1 1/2 inch logs. Transfer to a
    parchment or waxed paper lined tray. Top each log with one
    whole almond, pressing gently into the center to adhere.
    Loosely cover tray with foil and freeze logs for 20-30

    In the meantime, melt chocolate over a double boiler. Using
    two spoons, carefully dip each log in the melted chocolate,
    being sure to cover completely. Transfer to a parchment
    paper lined tray. Once all logs have been covered, transfer
    tray to refrigerator. Allow the candies to chill at least 30
    minutes (or until chocolate hardens). Transfer candies to an
    airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 1
    week (if they last that long).

    Makes 1 dozen.

    * NOT the same as high fructose corn syrup, a modified corn
    syrup used in commercial food products.
