1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 pkg (11 1/2-oz) milk chocolate pieces
1/4 cup vegetable shortening
26 whole natural almonds (1-oz)

Tastes just like Almond Joy.

Line two large cookie sheets with waxed paper. Set large wire cooling
rack on paper; set aside.

Place coconut in large bowl; set aside.

Place corn syrup in a 1-cup glass measure. Microwave on high (100%) 1
minute or until syrup boils. Immediately pour over coconut. Work warm
syrup into coconut using the back of a wooden spoon until coconut is
thoroughly coated. This takes a little time, and yes, there is enough

Using 1 level measuring tablespoon of coconut, shape into a ball by
squeezing coconut firmly in palm of one hand, then rolling between
both palms. (HINT: Measure out all of the coconut then roll into
balls.) Place 2 inches apart on wire racks. Let dry 10 minutes.
Reroll coconut balls so there are no loose ends of coconut sticking

Place milk chocolate and shortening in a 4-cup glass measure or 1 1/2 quart
microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high 1 to 2 minutes or until mixture can
be stirred smooth and is glossy; stirring once or twice.

Working quickly, spoon 1 level measuring tablespoon of the chocolate over
each coconut ball, making sure chocolate coats and letting excess chocolate
drip down onto waxed paper. While chocolate coating
is still soft, lightly press whole almond on top of each. Let stand to set or
place in refrigerator. Store in a single layer in airtight container. Keeps best
if refrigerated. Makes 26.

Deviled Eggs Recipe

1 dozen eggs
2 teaspoons dijon mustard
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 Tbsp minced onion or shallot
1/4 teaspoon tabasco
Salt and pepper

1 First hard boil the eggs. Fill up a large saucepan half-way with water and gently add the eggs. Cover the eggs with at least an inch of water. Add a teaspoon of vinegar to the water (this will help contain egg whites from leaking out if any of the shells crack while cooking). Bring the water to a boil. Cover, and remove from heat. Let sit covered for 15-17 minutes. Drain hot water from pan and run cold water over the eggs. (At this point if you crack the egg shells while the eggs are cooling, it will make it easier to peel the shells.) Let sit in the cool water a few minutes, changing the water if necessary to keep it cool.

2 Peel the eggs. Using a sharp knife, slice each egg in half, lengthwise. Gently remove the yolk halves and place in a small mixing bowl. Arrange the egg white halves on a serving platter.
