3 tablespoons corn syrup
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 tablespoon melted butter
2 cups shredded coconut
1/2 teaspoon coconut extract (optional)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate
Moisten hands slightly and form mixture into small rectangular cubes (or roll it into balls). Place on a sheet of parchment paper.
In a medium, microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate by microwaving it for 15 seconds, then stirring, microwaving for 15 seconds, then stirring, etc. until it's smooth and melty.
Dip coconut squares into the melted chocolate. Gently spread the chocolate around the coconut until the filling is fully covered by chocolate. Press a toasted almond into the top of the chocolate and allow to dry completely before serving.
Allow to cool at room temperature until chocolate hardens.
