Chocolate Almond Raisin No-Bake Cookies

No-bake cookies are great for summer when we don’t want to use the oven!

  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips (12 ounces)
  • 1 T. shortening
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds

In double boiler over simmering water, melt the chocolate chips and shortening.  Stir until smooth.  Remove from heat and stir in raisins and almonds.  Drop by tablespoon onto wax paper.  Chill until ready to serve.
