Homemade Bounty Bars

You can make bounty bars and you’ll only need 3 ingredients.

Like me you’re thinking GET OUT OF HERE, WHY HASN’T THIS BEEN BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION BEFORE!!!

So I’ve got a bit of a thing for coconut, coconut jam drops, coconut ice cream, lamingtons and now bounty bars.  

For a coconut lover like me I can’t fathom why I haven’t made them before.  As I said you only need 3 ingredients.  They’re so easy to make, the only cooking involved is melting chocolate and most of the time involved was the bars sitting in the freezer or fridge doing their thing .  Most importantly they were crazy delicious.

 Just a tip it’s important to test the coconut condensed milk mixture for quality control, however you’ll need self control while doing this otherwise you’ll devour the lot and have none to coat in chocolate.

Homemade Bounty Bars

3/4 Can Condensed milk

3 cups shredded coconut

450 g chocolate (I used 1/2 milk 1/2 dark because that ‘s what was in the cupboard, use what you prefer)

Put coconut into bowl, pour in condensed milk, mix thoroughly. 

Using wet hands shape into bar shapes and place on baking paper lined tray.  Put tray into freezer for a couple of hours to firm up.

Once the bars are firm, melt chocolate.  I usually do it in the microwave on high for 30 sec bursts stiring in between each burst. 

Working in batches take several of the bars out of the freezer (if you take them all out the ones you do last will have softened up) and coat in melted chocolate.  I find the best way is to roll them in chocolate with 2 forks and let any excess chocolate drip off.  Place on another baking a paper lined tray.

Repeat with remaining bars and either leave on bench or put in fridge to set chocolate, fridge is best if it’s warm to hot in your house plus they’ll be set quicker meaning you can enjoy them sooner 

Keep them stored in the fridge. I imagine these would last up to 4-5 days but they lasted just over a day in this house as they were so moreish.
