Combine the ingredients for the chocolate coating. Stir well, making sure to break up any of the chocolate clumps. You may need to add 1-2 more tsp. of coconut oil.
Add waxed paper to a baking sheet or pan that will fit in your freezer.
Pour out about 1/4 cup of the chocolate mixture and spread out with a spatula into a rectangle (about 4 candy bars across and 5 down).
Place in the freezer to harden (about 5 minutes)
While the chocolate is setting, make the coconut filling by combining all the ingredients (except the almonds) in a bowl.
Spread out the coconut mixture on the frozen chocolate and make sure it goes out to the edges. Spread as evenly as you can.
Add the almonds, 4 or 5 across and 4 or 5 down, using 20 almonds total.
Freeze for 5 minutes.
Remove from freezer and cut into squares, using the almonds to indicate the center of each piece of candy.
Freeze again 10 minutes.
Stir the chocolate (and microwave 20 seconds if it got a bit hard, it can do that in the cooler months). Using a spoon, spoon a light coating over each piece of candy
Freeze until chocolate has hardened, about 10 minutes.
