Chocolate covered dates

8 Large Majdool dates
6 cubes of 72% dark chocolate (I use the one pound chocolate bar from Trader Joe's)
16 roasted almonds
shredded coconut for decoration

-Melt the chocolate in a double boiler
-Meanwhile, slice dates open, remove pits, and place two almonds inside. Squeeze date closed.
-When chocolate has melted, let stand for 5 minutes then start rolling dates in it... coat dates with chocolate and sprinkle with some coconut.
-Place dates on parchment paper and freeze for about an hour before serving
