Looking for a fun and easy recipe for something sweet? Make 3 bars from lots of coconut ingredients! A sweet coconut filling dipped in dark chocolate and ready to eat in about 30 minutes… you’ll love this homemade version of the Mounds bars.
3 cups shredded unsweetened coconut
14-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk
15 ounces of semi-sweet or dark chocolate
In a medium bowl, combine coconut and sweetened condensed milk.
With clean, moist hands, shape the coconut mixture into 12 logs, each on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Freeze for about 20 minutes.
In a microwave container, melt about 10 ounces of chocolate in the microwave at high temperature for 30 seconds and then at 15-second intervals until completely melted. Stir well between each interval.
Add the remaining 5 ounces of chocolate to the melted chocolate and stir until melted.
Use forks to dip each of the coconut bars into the chocolate, then transfer back to the parchment lined cookie sheet. Let the chocolate from the bars settle. Because the bars have cooled in the freezer, the chocolate should set quickly.
