Homemade Bounty Bars | Chocolate Coconut Bars

As kids are on holidays, they are eager to help out in any daily chores to kill time. There are so many ways to keep the kids equipped, and I always try to keep them away from gadgets as much a possible, but sometimes it's inevitable. Taking their help in baking cookies or making chocolates in another interesting way to get them engaged, and my kids are always one step ahead to make homemade chocolates as they get to devour them once refrigerated. Bounty chocolate is our family favourite, and so I knew making homemade bounty will be interesting for kids. I have made this chocolate many times but each time before I present in front of the camera, bounties get over until recently when I made these early morning when all were asleep. Crazy me ?? Yes, anything for taking pics to present here, he he. But this time I was in a hurry to click pictures and so didn't wait for the chocolate to sweat out too. I have made this chocolate with milk chocolate, dark chocolate and a mix of both milk and dark chocolate. I feel the mix of both milk and dark chocolate gives the best taste. This is a very simple recipe that you can make in minutes and can enjoy anytime. Try and enjoy !!

Preparation time ~  10 minutes
Cooking time ~ 5 minutes
Author ~ Julie
Makes ~ 5 bars
* milk chocolate compound 100 gm
dessicated coconut 1/2 cup
whole milk 1.5 tbsp
condensed milk 4 tbsp (1/4 cup)

  • In a bowl, add the dessicated coconut and add milk and condensed milk. Mix well to form a wet dough. Then shape the dessicated coconut in cylinder shapes and flatten lightly. Refrigerate till use.

  • In another glass bowl, chop the milk chocolate roughly. (I made using milk chocolate the first time, then tried making using the dark chocolate. So the first half of the detailed pics is from the first made and the remaining are from second made pics, pls ignore)


  • Then double boil the chocolate by placing over a bowl of water and get a smooth melted chocolate. Dip each shaped coconut mix in the melted chocolate, covering all sides and place on parchment paper and make three straight lines to give that original look. Leave to cool in freezer and enjoy after 2 hours.

* You can use heavy cream instead of whole milk for a richer taste. But I feel the store brought dessicated coconut filling has a wet taste, but not a very thick taste.
* Milk chocolate or dark chocolate compound can be used. Use as desired.OR Use a mix of both milk and dark chocolate which tastes the best, almost similar to the store brought version.
* You can even shape the condensed milk dessicated coconut mix as balls and dip in melted chocolate to give a ball form.
