Sort of like a home-made Almond Joys for the cook who cant be bothered to make a real coconut filling, and who certainly doesn't want to do the dunking required to make a chocolate coating.

Recipe Ingredients for Coco Choco Clusters

2 1/2 cups finely shredded unsweetened coconut, lightly toasted and cooled
1/2 cup toasted almonds, cooled and chopped
8 ounces dark chocolate, chopped
1 tablespoon coffee beans, finely ground

Recipe Directions for Coco Choco Clusters

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat.

  2. Combine the coconut and almonds in a large bowl.

  3. Place the chocolate in a double boiler (or a bowl placed over a bit of simmering water) to melt along with the ground espresso.

  4. Pour the chocolate over the coconut mixture and stir to combine.

  5. Let cool a few minutes and then drop by the tablespoonful onto baking sheet.

  6. Finish with a few grains of salt on top of each.

  7. The mixture will be a bit crumbly, but will set as the chocolate cools. If your kitchen is on the cool side the clusters will set up over the course of an hour or so. If you want to speed up the process a bit, pop them in the refrigerator.
