Almond Joy Coconut Macaroons

1 can ( 14 oz.) Condensed Sweetened Milk
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 tsp Salt
1 pkg (14 oz.) Coconut

2 Squares Chocolate Almond Bark (4 oz.)
1 sm pkg sliced Almonds- toasted for 3-5 mins in oven

Mix in bowl Sweetened Milk, Vanilla, & Salt.  Add Coconut and stir til Coconut is coated.
Place a piece of parchment paper on your baking sheet. ( I have found that an air bake sheet works best)
Using a small scoop (1 tbs size), drop onto your baking sheet approx 2" apart.
Bake 350* for 13-15 mins. tops are toasty.  Let cool.

Melt Chocolate Almond Bark in Microwave cup. 30 seconds, stir, 30 seconds more until melted. Be careful not to burn.

Place a small amount of melted chocolate on each macaroon. Add almond slices to each top.
In a small baggie, pour the rest of the chocolate. Snip a very small corner of the bottom of the baggie and use the baggie to pipe & string chocolate on each of the macaroons to help hold the almonds on the top.
