I’m a sucker for anything chocolate covered. Coconut is one of my favourite flavours so as you can imagine I’ve always loved Bounty bars. I’ve recreated them a few times but last night I get the texture of the filling just as I wanted it and covered with dark Belgian chocolate and sprinkled with coconut they are a perfectly indulgent treat. Also it’s Chocolate Week ..any excuse huh?
You have to use a good chocolate for these as otherwise it totally spoils the taste. You also need the majority of a tin of condensed milk so perhaps these should be an occasional treat rather than an everyday one!
You will need:
300ml of Condensed Milk
175g of Dessicated Coconut
200g of Dark Chocolate
Combine your coconut and condensed milk in a bowl until it all comes together.
Using your hands ( beware you will get sticky ) roll into small balls and place on greaseproof paper until it’s chilled and firmer.
Now melt your chocolate using whichever method you prefer, if I’m in a hurry I use the microwave in short blasts until it’s mostly melted then stir with a spatula until it’s molten.
Now dip your coconut balls into the chocolate, place back on the greaseproof paper and sprinkle over some coconut. Place back in the fridge to set, as soon as they are set place in a tub with a lid and keep refrigerated.
A delicious treat and energy boost for the mid afternoon slump..or ahem..breakfast?
If you are a fellow Bounty lover try this No Churn Bounty Ice Cream from Fuss Free Flavours.
And how about trying some other versions of famous treats?
