Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup coconut cream
  • 1/4 cup full-fat coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp mild tasting honey or rice malt syrup for vegan or low fructose

Chocolate cover

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil refined or unrefined, melted
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp mild tasting honey or rice malt syrup for vegan or low fructose

Instructions

  1. Add shredded coconut, coconut cream, coconut milk and honey in the bowl of your food processor. Pulse until it forms a thick and sticky paste (but stop before it becomes completely smooth!), scraping the edges of the bowl with a spatula if needed.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using your hands, form about 8 rectangles with the paste. Press firmly to make sure the rectangles will keep their shape. 

  3. Arrange on prepared baking sheet. Freeze for about 1 hour or until very firm. This will make the candy easier to dip into chocolate. Don't skip this part or it'll be a mess!

  4. In the meantime, prepare the chocolate cover. In a small pot, add coconut oil, cocoa powder and honey. Heat on very low heat and whisk until fully combined and nicely smooth and shiny. Remove from the heat and cool down slightly.
  5. Remove rectangles from the freezer. If you want to take your time, you can work with one rectangle at a time and leave the others in the freezer. 

  6. Using two forks, dip one rectangle in chocolate and roll it several times to cover all sides. Place on lined baking sheet and repeat with remaining rectangles. Place back in the freezer for 10 minutes, or until chocolate has set.

  7. For a thicker chocolate cover, repeat step 4 and dip each bounty in the chocolate again (optional but recommended for even more yumminess!).
  8. Store in the fridge (they will melt if kept outside the fridge)
