Not only are these coconut chocolate bars (aka Bounty Bars) quick and easy to make, but also healthier than the original. Fresh our of the fridge, these make the perfect summer snack.
To a bowl add all of the filling ingredients ans mix to combine. Knead with your hands to combine well.
Press onto small baking dish or plate (I used a small plate of 6 x 6 inches) and let set in the freezer for at least 2 hours.
If making your own chocolate: melt together all of the ingredients in a simple double boiler and mix well.
Alternatively: Melt ready-made chocolate with the double boiler method.
Cut coconut filling into bars (I ended up with 12 individual bars, each about 3 inches long).
Prepare an oven rack over a baking sheet.
With a fork dip each bar into the melted chocolate, making sure it's coated from every angle. Then place on oven rack and continue with remaining bars.
