Coconut Filling
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp shredded coconut flakes
2 tsp. tbsp raw cane sugar
2 tbsp creamed coconut
(Also coconut manna or coconut butter works) 

First mix the chocolate ingredients together on a double boiler. When we’ll incorporated, pore enough chocolate to fill a 1/2 inch layer at bottom of a lined mini muffin tray or unlinedsilicone tray to make bite sized candies. Reserve half of chocolate to coat filling.

When chocolate hardens layer coconut filling into middle, use about a tsp in each, add an almond on top, then pour chocolate to coat the coconut/almond center and freeze to set up.

These are amazeballs. I store mine in the fridge or you can freeze them and they’ll stay good for awhile.
