Bounty Bars are popular confectionery bars that feature a coconut filling covered with milk or dark chocolate. They are a product of Mars, Incorporated, and are especially popular in the UK, Canada, Europe, and other parts of the world.
Would you like a homemade version of the recipe? If so, here’s a basic one:
Homemade Bounty Bars Recipe
4 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
1 cup condensed milk (or as needed to bind the coconut)
2 cups chocolate (milk or dark, according to preference)
1 tablespoon coconut oil (optional, but it makes the chocolate coating smoother)
1.Prepare the Coconut Filling:
-In a mixing bowl, combine the shredded coconut with condensed milk. You want the mixture to be moist enough to hold together but not overly wet.
-Shape the mixture into small bars or logs. You can use your hands or molds if you have them.
-Place the shaped coconut bars on a parchment paper-lined tray and freeze for about an hour, or until firm.
-In a microwave-safe bowl or using a double boiler, melt the chocolate and coconut oil together. Stir until smooth.
-Remove the coconut bars from the freezer. Using a fork or dipping tool, dip each bar into the melted chocolate, ensuring it’s fully coated.
-Place the chocolate-coated bars back on the parchment paper-lined tray.
-Allow the Bounty Bars to set in the refrigerator for an hour or until the chocolate is solid.
-Once set, you can store them in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
Enjoy your homemade Bounty Bars! Adjust the recipe as needed to fit your taste, such as using more or less condensed milk or choosing between milk or dark chocolate.
