This recipe is SUPER quick to make and SO kid friendly!

I have even taken the coconut cluster ingredients (minus the chocolate and some of the coconut oil) and placed in a pyrex dish. I put that in freezer while melting the chocolate and coconut oil. I topped the dish with the chocolate and placed in fridge. We scooped it out into small bowls and ate it! OH YUM! That's all I can say! Mouth-watering delicious treat!

Enjoy!

Have a HAPPY and HEALTHY week!
