Introduction: Homemade Bounty Bars

When I was child my mother used make different variations of Snickers, Mars and any other chocolate bar. They were delicious, but often didn't have anything in common with the originals.

A few days ago I bought Bounty for myself and the idea was born. After a short research I decided to make my own Bounty bars. They taste similar but somehow better.

Hope you are going to like it. :)

Also, I would be really grateful if you could support me here.

You'll need:

200g (7oz) shredded coconut

70g (2,5oz) powdered sugar

70g (2,5oz) butter

100ml (3,3oz) heavy whipping cream

Step 1: Bounty Bar Preparation

1. In a saucepan mix the butter and heavy whipping cream. Heat gently over a hot water, stirring until it is well blended and dissolved.

2. Mix shredded coconut and powdered sugar.

Step 2: Preparing the Paste

Pour melted butter and heavy cream over shredded coconut and sugar mixture. Mix everything together to make a thick and sticky paste.

Step 3: How to Shape the Bars

Using your hands, form rectangles or any other form you like with the paste you made before. Press firmly to make sure the rectangles will keep their shape and won't fall apart. Put rectangles on parchment paper and refrigerate for one hour.

Step 4: Chocolate Coating

You'll need 250g of chocolate. I used dark chocolate but you could also use regular milk chocolate.

Microwave 2/3 on medium power for 30 seconds, stir, then repeat in 15 seconds interval until the chocolate has melted.

After that add the rest of the chocolate and stir until completely melted. Wait for minute or two and start dipping bars in the chocolate coating.

When completely coated put them back in the refrigerator for another 30 minutes.

Step 5: Support Me :)

Oh my laaawwddd.....I'm drooling! I love Bounty bars! This has been added to my recipe book!

Thank you so much!

Halfway through and just had to lick all that gooey coconut goodness off my fingers!!!

Made these a few years ago, and tested a batch sprayed with whiskey. They never left the kitchen.....

Oh my god! You just gave me the best idea! Thank you!

;) you're welcome.
if you add alcoholic flavor while hot, much of the alcohol can evaporate.

Super!! This makes me go crazy thinking of all the different variations one could do to this wonderful creation of yours. I will make some bars by adding some crushed biscuits and cereals instead of the grated coconut......to get my very own homemade cereal bars ! One could even add chopped peanuts,raisins,cashew nuts,almonds.....and whatever else that they like....to come up with some fine homemade chocolates, all thanks to your idea.

ALL THE BEST for your Indiegogo‬ campaign.

Great ideas. Do let me know if you any of them! :)
THANK YOU! I appreciate support of any kind.

nice recipe I tried some a while ago but failed but these are extraordinarily good (btw where did you get that measuring bowl this is genius)

You should try to make them again! You are probably wiser now. :)
Measuring bowl my aunt bought here in Zagreb few years ago. She said that she didn't see the same bowl long time now. I will steal it one day from her. :)
