Almond Joy Fudge
- 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
- 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 3 tablespoons Dixie Crystals Light Brown Sugar
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, soft
- Pinch of salt
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup blanched slivered almonds, plus more for topping
- 1/3 cup shredded unsweetened coconut, plus more for topping
- Spread a thin layer of oil into an 8x8-inch pan. Press a sheet of plastic food wrap tightly onto oil and pressing well into corners, set aside.
- In a small saucepan on low heat, add sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips, brown sugar, butter, and salt. Melt together until smooth, stirring constantly to prevent bottom from scorching.
- Once thoroughly combined, remove from heat and gently stir in vanilla, almonds, and coconut.
- Scrape mixture into prepared pan. Sprinkle additional almonds and coconut on top of fudge, pressing down slightly.
- Refrigerate a minimum of 4 hours OR until firm. Remove from pan, peel off plastic wrap and cut into squares. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
