Coconut Almond Chocolate Clusters

There is nothing I love more than coconut and chocolate, so desserts with either of these or even both are something that I can't resist! I know everyone is probably thinking of buying Easter candy right now, but instead of buying that bad for you store bought candy - make these Coconut Almond Clusters instead! They are literally so easy and have just three ingredients - milk chocolate, coconut and almonds.
