Ingredients Directions
  1. Finely chop the unsweetened bakers chocolate and place in a medium bowl with the Splenda.

  3. Stir to melt the chopped chocolate and blend all the ingredients well. Stir in the vanilla extract. Fold in 1 1/2 cups of shredded coconut and the crushed almonds.
  4. Cover and refrigerate overnight to solidify.
  5. The next day roll out 36 balls by the tablespoonful in the palm of your hand. Place them on a wax paper lined sheet pan so they do not stick.

  7. Refrigerate for about 1 to 2 more hours to chill thoroughly.
