I do the same thing, but I'll often prepare about three TBSP of coconut oil in a small mixing bowl PLUS any combination of the following:

I put whatever the combo of the day is into the smallest styrofoam bowls I've found and throw them in the freezer. This makes 2-3 coconut bark cups, depending on different amounts and combos of ingredients.
Don't forget the magic shell topping once the bark cups are ready! Take a little coconut oil and a dash of sweetener, (can add a little cocoa powder for a chocolatey shell) zap it in the microwave for a couple of seconds to liquify it so that you can pour it over your frozen cup and stick it back in the freezer for a few seconds. Often, you don't even need to stick it back in as it doesnt take long to solidify before your eyes, depending on how frozen the cocobark cup is!
Endless possibilities, but this stuff is addictive. I've made imitation Reese's cups, Almond Joy cups, even a Whatchamacallit-type cup - the fatty coconut milk when frozen creates a sort of nougat-y consistency.
I almost regret starting this little practice - I'm that addicted!
