Easy Homemade Mounds Bars or Bounty Bars

The recipe yields about 35-40 bite-sized bars. 1 bite for a hungry husband, 2-3 for everyone else. This was all the bars left, when I realized that I simply must have this recipe handy for future use. Impressive, yet simple – gotta love it.

  • 1 can of sweetened condensed milk (14 oz / 397 gr)
  • 9 oz / 250 gr unsweetened shredded coconut
  • A pinch of salt
  • 200 gr / 7 oz good quality dark chocolate 70% (or more – depends on the thickness of the coating and your willpower)
  1. Bring the sweetened condensed milk to a boil and let boil for 2 minutes.
  2. Turn off the heat and stir in the shredded coconut.
  3. Add a pinch of salt to taste – and I mean taste it.
  4. Roll into small bars about the size of a mounds bar. You hands will get sticky. Cool the bars in the fridge for about 20 minutes.
  5. Make yourself a cup of something nice and take a rest.
  6. Finely chop the dark chocolate and melt it. I use a microwave, 15 seconds at a time. Gently stir, then melt again until you’re done.
  7. Dip the bars one at a time and sprinkle with coconut.
  8. Cool and store in the fridge.
