These mounds bars are easy to make and rich with dark chocolate and a coconut filling consisting of shredded coconut, coconut oil and agave. My older son downed them and thought they were delicious. My younger son is not a chocolate lover, so these did not strike his fancy.
Mounds Candy Bars
- Melt chocolate in a small pan over very low heat; you can use a double boiler if you wish and temper the chocolate
- Using a small paint brush, coat the bottom and sides of a mounds candy mold
- Place mold in freezer for 10 minutes to allow chocolate to harden
- In a small bowl, combine shredded coconut, coconut oil and agave
- Remove mold from freezer
- Fill chocolate lined molds with coconut mixture
- Paint chocolate over coconut mixture to cover bars
- Place in freezer for 10 minutes to harden
- Remove from freezer, turn mold upside down and pop mounds out of mold
Makes 9 mounds bars (depending on your candy mold)
