Coconut Cream Cheese Crunch


So I had Cream Cheese that I needed to use, so I thought I'd experiment in the kitchen. I tried a few things, didn't work out. So then I tried again and came up with this :-) It has roasted coconut and chopped walnuts on top. So I hope you enjoy!!!

Ingredients
2 Bags of Dark Chocolate Chips
1 Package of Coconut  
1 3/4 C Confectioners Sugar
1 Tsp of Heavy Cream
1 8 oz bar of Cream Cheese
Bag of Walnuts
1 Tsp Vanilla

In a double boiler or microwave melt one bag of your dark chocolate chips. When they are melted let it cool for a bit.. Get a cookie sheet and line it with parchment paper. Then take your chocolate and pour it on the lined cookie sheet. Spread it out smooth. Take a handful of chopped walnuts and sprinkle on top of the chocolate. Put in the freezer till its hardened. Put the rest of the coconut on a cookie sheet that's lined with aluminum foil. Bake at 450. Keep checking it and stirring as not to burn it. After about 6 minutes or until golden brown. Take it out and let it cool  While the chocolate is  in the freezer, put your cream cheese, 1 1/2 C Coconut, 1 tsp heavy cream, confectioners sugar , and vanilla. Mix it until smooth. When your chocolate is hardened, then take it out and spread the coconut mixture on top. Make it smooth. Put it in the freezer. Then melt the second bag of chocolate, When its smooth set it out to cool just a bit. Take out your coconut mixture and pour the last bag of melted chocolate over it. Top with your roasted coconut and walnuts. Put it in the freezer. Chill till hardened and chop into bars.
