Salt - 1/4 Teaspoon
Almonds, Chopped - 3/4 Cup
Chocolate Chips--Divide - 2 Cups
Vanilla Extract - 1 1/2 Teaspoon
Coconut Extract - 1/2 Teaspoon
Sweetened Condensed Milk - 1 (14 ounce) can
Whole Almonds - 24-30

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with silpat mats or parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, mix together coconut, flour, salt, almonds and 1 cups of chocolate chips.
In a small bowl mix together vanilla extract, coconut extract and sweetened condensed milk. Stir into coconut mixture.
Scoop out a golfball size ball of dough and drop onto prepared cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. Flatten cookie dough with your fingeres (dip them in water or spray them with nonstic cooking spray to prevent sticking).
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges of cookies are golden brown.
Place the remaining 1 cup of chocolate chips in a small microwave safe bowl. Microwave on 50% for 30 seconds, stir until completely melted. Spoon melted chocolate into a small ziplock. Cut off one corner and drizzle each cookie with chocolate. Top each cookie with one whole almond in the melted chocolate.
Allow the cookies to cool completely and set. Store in an air tight container.

Personal Notes:
Dad made mom this card for their 45th wedding anniversary. Dad wasn’t able to get to a store to buy mom a card so created his own. “45 years have past, Some good-Some bad. One thing has stayed the same-We still have the same last name”
