Every now and then I'm overcome with the urge to indulge in a Bounty chocolate bar (admittedly it always seems to happen while walking through the chocolate aisle at the supermarket...). More often than not I resist the urge but not always. When I faced my most recent temptation I decided to take matters into my own hands and create my own Bounty bar, free from artificial ingredients, and at a cost well below $2.50 per bar.

The finished product


I've experimented with two versions, one using coconut milk and the other coconut oil; the oil version holds together slightly better, but the cream version is naturally a little creamier. Both versions are delicious and incredibly simple with only four ingredients, and have been a big hit so far.

Ingredients

Version 1
1 cup dessicated coconut
4 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon rice malt syrup (or liquid sweetener of your choice)
100 gm dark chocolate

Version 2
Exactly the same as the first but replace the coconut oil with one quarter cup of coconut milk or cream.

Method
Add the dessicated coconut to a blender and mix for a minute.
Add the coconut oil or milk, and the syrup and blend until the mixture clumps together.

Using your hands, fashion the mix into small bite size bars (or any size and shape you like) and put in the freezer to set.

Melt your chocolate in a double boiler or a heat proof bowl over a saucepan of water (don't let the bowl touch the bottom of the saucepan).
Dip your bars into the melted chocolate to coat then put back in the fridge to set on a plate or tray lined with baking paper.

Enjoy!

These homemade Bounty bar bites would be fabulous for a party treat.
