Coconut Candy Recipe Help

Valentines Day is coming up and my boyfriend is getting a big box of homemade treats. He's requested that I make a coconut chocolate candy similar to Almond Joy's. I have a few ideas in mind, but I've NEVER successfully made candy.

Does anyone have any recipes for a candy along the lines of an Almond Joy that can withstand overnight delivery across the country? Also, preferably, it'd be a pretty simple recipe/process seeing as how I completely suck at all things baking/candy-making related.

Thanks in advance!
