The almond is double toasted because the first toast dehydrates and crisps it. But the second toast softens the fibers and releases natural sweetness from those bonds. It makes the almond more brittle, rather than crispy.
Also, carnauba wax was one of the ingredients. It could be that they used the wax to prevent the fat bloom in the chocolate. A very thin misting of it over the coconut would likely suffice and under a surface coating of chocolate and contrasted against the color of coconut, it would be nearly imperceptible.

I wanna see her attempt British treats. Like I wanna see Claire attempt to make gourmet poppets. Poppets are balls of chewy mint taffy with a chocolate layer on them.
