          How could anyone see chocolate and decide to poison it with coconut?

                Bake the coconut for a couple of minutes, it makes the shell crack!

                          What I got from this video. It's not a Pastry Chef attempts video if Claire doesn't go through depression because of tempering chocolate, and brad isn't in the video

                              I could never have almond joys. I has allergies to almonds, pistachios or peanuts.

                                            The chocolate that Claire is using isn't full of stabilizers.

                                              Can someone help me out? Do they buy all these chocolate just for that shot? Does everyone in the kitchen then have to eat a whole bunch of almond joys? What happens with it all? Why so much?

                                                If the problem is fat migration, using milk chocolate with a higher fat content would help. The chocolate she was using looked way too dark.

                                                              I wonder if cooling the bars before covering with chocolate would keep them from developing the wavy texture.
