Sure to please the chocolate and coconut lovers in your family, these cookies are easy to make and require no baking. Created by Diana A. Morrison of Long Beach, CA.
- 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels, melted

- 1 cup ground almonds
- 1 pkg. (7 oz. or 2 2/3 cups) flaked coconut, divided
- 1 cup sifted powdered sugar

MELT morsels in medium, uncovered microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 1 minute; STIR. Morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted.

SHAPE into balls using about 1 tablespoon of the mixture. A small cookie scoop may be used to help shape these cookies, if desired. Roll in remaining coconut. Store in airtight container in refrigerator. Let stand at room temperature about 1 hour before serving.
