This amazing dark chocolate coconut almonds recipe features rich, dark chocolate packed with roasted almonds and crunchy coconut. The perfect dessert-inspired treat!

The Easiest Dark Chocolate Coconut Almonds Treat Ever.

By far! Sometimes I get all crabby thinking about having to melt chocolate and potentially create a choco-mess (you know the one). But then, I think of the dizzyingly blissful aroma of melted chocolate and start bringing out my special choco-spatula. Today, I assure you, the choco-mess is so worth it. These dark chocolate coconut almonds are so quick ‘n easy to make, that I was finished before I even did the normal amount of prep work for a regular recipe. Ready to see? Let’s go!

For real, only 3 Ingredients for Dark Chocolate Almond Coconut Delight

  • Dark chocolate chips or chunks. Make sure to use your very favorite (okay, maybe 2nd fave is okay) dark chocolate chips or chunks, since the flavor of the chocolate is the strongest one in this recipe.
  • Unsweetened coconut chips or shreds. Coconut chips are much larger than shredded coconut, while shreds are tinier and spread out much more in your dark chocolate coconut almonds.
  • Unsalted, roasted almonds. You can totally use salted almonds if you want a salty sweet kick. Or, you can sprinkle some sea salt atop each cluster. I prefer unsalted, roasted almonds because I love their unfettered almond flavor—but that’s just a personal preference. 😉

How to Make Coconut Almonds with Dark Chocolate

It’s super simple to make coconut almond with dark chocolate! Simply start by lining a baking sheet or a plate with wax paper or parchment paper.

Then, melt the chocolate any way you wish—with a double boiler on a stovetop or in the microwave.

Now, fold in almonds and coconut. Follow by scooping melty piles of dark chocolate coconut almonds onto that lined sheet or plate.

You can optionally sprinkle some chopped almonds and coconut on top to make the clusters pretty. Lastly, chill until firm and enjoy the best dark chocolate almond coconut clusters!

Can I Customize These?

Absolutely! If you’re hankering for coconut and almonds today, but can’t even bare to look at them tomorrow (we’re allowed to have moods), then go ahead and customize! Try these swaps:

  • Dark Chocolate: Try swapping the dark chocolate with a less dark chocolate, or even a white chocolate.
  • Almonds: Try swapping the almonds in this dark chocolate almond coconut recipe with another nut or seed. Sometimes I like trying peanuts instead, or even a mix of walnuts, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds.
  • Coconut: If you’re not in a coconut kind of mood, try using more nuts & seeds, or dried fruit like dried blueberries, apricots, cranberries… the possibilities are endless!
