Ingredients

Chocolate coating

Coconut Filling

Instructions

  • 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.
