MORRISTOWN, NJ - Almond Joy Cookies take just four ingredients and don't even require a mixer. No beating, no chilling, just mix them up and throw them in the oven. Drop cookies are easy to make and are kid friendly too.

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
⅔ cup chopped lightly salted almonds
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
