Homemade Mounds Candy

A very dear, sweet and beautiful friend, Sandy Lewis Howell, gave me this fantastic recipe for mounds candy.  I just love it!  It's really easy to make..a bit sticky but oh so good!  I made a couple of changed to her recipe.  Mainly, because it was what I had on hand.  ~smile~  I decreased the amount of coconut to 7 oz because that was all I had.  It made a thin 8x8 pan. The candy is so rich, it was just the right size for us.  I also used almond bark instead of the chocolate chips.   Enjoy!  <3 and hUgs!

Mounds Bars 

5 ounces sweetened condensed milk 

1 teaspoon vanilla 

2 cups powdered sugar

14 ounces flaked coconut

1 (24 ounce) bag of semisweet chips

almonds, optional to place on top before dipping in chocolate to make 

almond joys 

Blend the milk and the vanilla. 

Add the sugar a little at a time till smooth                       

Stir in the coconut. 

The mixture should be firm. 

Line pan with plastic wrap and spray lightly with non-stick spray. 

Pat firmly into a 9x13 pan and chill till firm. You can also skip this and roll into balls. 

Cut into bars, or shapes and put in the refrigerator or freezer until set.  

Take out of fridge or freezer and dip in melted candy.  

Let cool on waxed paper for several hours or place in fridge or freezer again.
