3 packages semisweet chocolate pieces (6 ounces each)
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1 container (6 ounces) candied red and green cherries, sliced
1 jar (6 ounces) maraschino cherries, chopped, reserve tablespoon syrup
1 teaspoon almond extract
3/4 cup blanched almonds, slivered
3/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
3/4 cup finely chopped pecans
1 package (6 ounces) shredded coconut
In a glass bowl combine chocolate chops and sweetened condensed milk. Microwave on full power for 3 minutes, remove and stir after 1 ½ minutes. After chocolate is melted stir in cherries, syrup and extract.
Take 3 pieces of waxed paper and pour one different kind of chopped nuts on each of the three pieces of waxed paper. Divide the chocolate mixture into 3 parts and spoon one third over each of the three kinds of nuts. Using the waxed paper to shape the chocolate rolls roll the chocolate around inside nuts using the pieces of waxed paper to form 3 log shaped nut covered chocolate rolls.
When you have all three of the logs formed put them in the refrigerator still in the waxed paper and chill until they are firm.
To serve remove from refrigerator and cut slices from each of the three different rolls, and place them on a serving plate covered with shredded coconut and sprinkle more on top.
