ANNOUNCING: Change is part of life, and apparently, it's part of blogging, too. As of September 5, 2013, I'm merging The Virtual Goody Plate with Disco Mom Takes on the World and whatever else may henceforth spill from my fingertips (and kitchen), into one great new blog. I hope you'll join me there in exclaiming, "THIS IS AWESOMELAND."

VGP #30 Almond Joy Bites

Kudos to friend and fellow sweet-tooth Rebecca Yeates for this gorgeous and super yummy confection! Unfortunately I don't have a picture. I had them at a party (without my camera) and therefore know they're good, but just picture a one-almond bite-size Almond Joy and you've got it.

2 cups flaked sweetened coconut
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
2 T butter, softened
25 raw whole almonds
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1 T shortening

1. Cream together the coconut, powdered sugar, sweetened condensed milk and butter until well combined. Form into balls and press one whole almond into each ball.

2. Melt the chocolate chips and shortening carefully, stirring until smooth. Either drizzle over coconut bites or dip them. To dip, break the middle two prongs off of a plastic fork so there are only the outer two prongs. Place a candy on the fork and dip into the chocolate, using a spoon to cover completely. Place on wax paper to set.

Makes about 25 bites

I am loving the Virtual Goodie Plate - every recipe sounds divine. I am going to print them all out so I will always have an arsenal of great treats. It looks like you had a very good christmas - hope your New Year is just as great!

Jenny - wait until tomorrow before printing them out. Read the post called VGP Summary that will come up about noon your time - you may have a better option!
