384 – Homemade Mounds (Bounty) Bars /حلوى الشوكولاته و جوز الهند
- 1 can (13 oz / 380 grams) sweetened condensed milk
- 7 oz / 200 grams shredded unsweetened natural coconut
- 11 oz / 300 grams dark chocolate (60-70 % cocoa)
- 1 tablespoon of butter
1- In a bowl, mix shredded unsweetened natural coconut with sweetened condensed milk until you get a thick and sticky paste.
2- Place the coconut paste in the fridge while preparing the rest of the recipe.
3- Place the chocolate and a bit of butter in a bowl, and microwave in 30 seconds intervals until the chocolate has melted. Don’t forget to mix in-between to avoid burning the chocolate.
4- To make the chocolate shells, I am using a silicone mold, but feel free to use any mold of your choice or even just baking paper cups.
Put a little bit of melted chocolate in each cavity, and use a brush to spread it in the bottom and sides.
5- Place the mold in the freezer for 5 minutes, then do it again. Add another layer of chocolate – you want the bottom and the sides to be thick for the chocolate bar not break later.
6- Place in the freezer for a second time for 5 minutes.
7- Now, add the coconut filling and spoon the chocolate on top. Use a spatula to flatten the surface.
8- Place in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
9- Once the chocolate has set, warm the bottom of the pan with you finger and carefully unmold the chocolates
