This dessert is based on a classic candy bar that contains almonds, coconut, and chocolate. In this bar, the almonds are not toasted; they are mostly there for texture and a little flavor. Here, almond praline pearls are used for flavor and crunch. Almond, coconut, and chocolate go well together because even though the almond and the coconut are background flavors, they are strengthened by the chocolate and play off each other well when used in the right amounts.
