Almond Joy Bites

Looking for a delicious, gluten-free candy, to give to those special people in your life? Look no further, you have found it. I was internet hopping and found this recipe on Food Network.
This recipe comes form Alton Brown, one of my favorite chef-celebs on Food Network. Warning, these are rich, but well worth the time :)


1 cup toasted chopped Macadamia nuts, or other favorite nuts
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
One 7-ounce bag sweetened shredded coconut
One 12-ounce bag semisweet chocolate morsels, melted
1 tablespoon shortening

Directions In a bowl mix together the nuts, condensed milk, almond extract and coconut. Using your fingers, press the mixture into balls about 3/4-inch round. Place onto sheet trays and let rest at room temperature for 4 hours or in the refrigerator for 1 hour. After the balls have set up, melt the chocolate and shortening until smooth. Dip into the chocolate to coat evenly and lightly. Place onto a parchment or foil lined sheet pan to dry
