Bounty Bars - No bake!

Yummy chocolate bars full of coconut with only 5 ingredients!


For me, bounty bars have been a growing love - I like so many always avoided them in the celebration box at Christmas, why I really can't say. But then something clicked and I just loved them. I don't think I ever had the idea of combining chocolate with coconut until now and it really works. So of course my vegan days have come upon us and I now no longer eat bounty bars - but alas, it's not over as I've got this super simple recipe with only 5 ingredients! They are so moreish I didn't want to stop. If you're like m and missing some non-vegan treats then this recipe is for you. And like I always say, I'm still waiting on Mars to make bounty bars vegan, I mean if I can do they certainly can!

Recipe

Prep: 5 minutes + 40 minutes chilling time
Cook: No bake
Serves: 12

Ingredients

200g Dessicated coconut
30g Coconut oil melted
130g Coconut milk
2tbsp Maple syrup
150g Vegan milk chocolate
150g Vegan dark chocolate


Method

✿In a bowl combine the coconut, coconut milk, coconut oil and maple syrup and stir altogether. It should be thick and will stick together if you roll it in to a ball. 
✿Line a rectangular (mine was 10x6 inches) baking tray with grease proof paper and spoon in the mixture. Press it down so it is flat and even and place in the freezer to set about 20 minutes. Alternatively you can do this in stages and spoon the mixture into a loaf pan and then repeat the process once you have completed the rest of the steps. 
✿Once the mixture has set remove from the freezer and lift out of the baking tray. Cut into 12 bars and then return to the freezer for another 10 minutes. 
✿Melt the chocolate in the microwave in 20 second intervals stirring between until completely smooth.
✿Remove the bars from the freezer and then using a spoon and a fork dip each bar into the chocolate and flip each one over so it is completely covered then place back on the tray. You will have to work quickly so that the bars don't soften without the chocolate. 
✿Place back in the freezer to completely set about 10 minutes then pop in the fridge before you are ready to serve. Keep stored in the fridge in an airtight container. Enjoy!
