  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1/4 tsp. almond extract
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped blanched almonds
  • 2 cups uncooked quick oats (oatmeal)
  • some flaked coconut

Instructions :

Beat butter and sugar together until creamy.
Blend in cocoa and almond extract; mix thoroughly.
Stir in almonds and oats. Chill for 2 to 3 hours.
Form 1 inch balls from the dough mixture and then
roll the balls in the flaked coconut. Keep in the
refridgerator.
