Supplies Needed: Homemade Mounds Bars

  1. 8 X 8 inch baking pan
  2. Mixing bowl
  3. Small microwave safe bowl
  4. Rubber Spatula
  5. A fork


  • 3 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon flaked sea salt
  • 2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 10 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted


Line an 8×8-inch baking pan with parchment paper or tin foil. Spray with nonstick spray.

In a medium bowl mix together the coconut, salt, and condensed milk until combined. Press mixture into prepared pan and spread into an even layer with a rubber spatula. Freeze for 15 minutes, or until slightly hardened.

In a small microwave-safe bowl melt the chocolate in 15-second bursts in the microwave, stirring between every burst, until smooth.

Remove coconut mixture from pan. Cut into 1-inch bars. Dip the coconut bars in the chocolate, turning to coat with a fork. Let excess drip before placing on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Place mounds bars in fridge until chocolate has set. Bars can be kept in the fridge for up to 4 days

Enjoy! Check back next week for another bite worthy recipe!
