        1. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Feel free to add 1-2 tablespoons coconut oil if the chocolate is very thick. ⁠
        2. Place some melted chocolate on a cake board, and then place one cookie. ⁠
        3. Layer chocolate and cookies. ⁠
        4. We put chocolate and slivered almonds on the corners of all the cookies but you can decorate how you’d like!
