No Bake Bounty Bars

This little beaut of a recipe is ridiculously simple and, as the title suggests, doesn’t even involve any oven time. It’s a little bit messy but the result – not to mention the added bonus of getting to polish off any excess melted chocolate – makes it well worth any sticky fingers in my opinion. These quantities make approximately 20 little bars.

What You’ll Need

  • 4oz butter
  • 4oz icing sugar
  • 6oz desiccated coconut
  • 2x 100g bars chocolate (dark or milk, it’s up to you)

What to do

  1. Line a baking tin (I used a swiss roll tin) with some greaseproof paper.
  2. Cream the butter and the icing sugar together
  3. Add the desiccated coconut – the mixture should be reasonably firm but easy to manipulate
  4. Make little bars with the butter-sugar-coconut mixture – roughly 5cm long x 3cm wide
  5. Pop them into the fridge for 30-45 mins to firm up.
  6. Melt the chocolate – you can do this using a bain-marie but if you prefer to be lazy (like me) you can put it in the microwave (though don’t put it on for very long and keep checking it!)
  7. Remove the coconut bars from the fridge and roll each one in the melted chocolate so that it is completely covered and no white bits are showing through.
  8. Pop the bars back onto the tray and let them set in the fridge for a further 30-45 mins whilst you do the washing up / lick the bowl with the leftover chocolate.

These little bars keep in the fridge for up to a few weeks – apparently. They’ve never lasted that long in my house. Enjoy!
