If you're melting the chocolate in a double boiler, bring water to a boil in a saucepan. Lower it to a simmer and place a heat proof glass bowl over top of the water but no touching it. Toss the chocolate in the bowl and melt until smooth. Stir as needed.If you're melting it in the microwave, then toss the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and melt for 2 to 3 minutes. Make sure you check it often after the 1 minute mark.
Add the coconut extract to the chocolate. Stir well.
Pour the mixture into an 8 x 8 parchment lined pan.
Toss the coconut over top the chocolate.
Pop the pan in the fridge to set up. This should take 20 to 60 minutes.
Remove the pan from the fridge. You can either break apart by hand or cut it. I prefer rough edges so I break mine by hand.
This coconut bark can be given away as gifts or eaten up all my your little old self.
