If you don’t have a stove at your disposal and can’t follow the recipe, no worries. There are other ways to melt chocolate. The easiest way to do it is to microwave chocolate chips or small pieces. Don’t forget to take the dish out of the microwave frequently and stir the mixture so that it doesn’t scorch.
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup white sugar
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 1/2 cups flaked coconut
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup almonds, chopped
Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Melt the butter in a saucepan; remove from heat and stir in the sugar and graham cracker crumbs. Spread the mixture into the bottom of a 9×13-inch baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven until slightly firm, about 10 minutes.
Stir the coconut and condensed milk together in a bowl; spread over the baked crust and return to oven for 12 minutes more. Set aside to cool at least 10 minutes.
Melt the chocolate in the top of a double boiler over just-barely simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching. Stir the almonds into the melted chocolate; spread evenly over the cooled coconut layer. Allow to cool until the chocolate sets.
