Details on the 3 ingredients of the recipe

  • Grated coconut : it brings the coconut flavor to homemade bounty. I advise you to use finely grated coconut (the one that is easily found in stores).
  • Sweetened condensed milk : it will bring the binder inside and allow to create a creamy and finely sweetened texture.
  • Dark chocolate pastry 52% cocoa : it is used to coat homemade bounty. I use dark chocolate to have a less sweet side in the final result. However, if you want to look more like the original sold in stores, you will have to use milk chocolate (as a complete replacement or 50/50 with dark chocolate).

How to make homemade bounty?

  1. We mix the grated coconut and sweetened condensed milk.
  2. We mash this mixture in a square pan, then put in the freezer.
  3. On cut the rectangles of coconut, we round them like the real bounty then we put them back in the freezer.
  4. We do melt the chocolate in a bain-marie.
  5. We completely dip each coconut bar in the chocolate using a fork.
  6. We decorate with 3 small lines then put in the refrigerator to harden.

NB: the detailed recipe with the quantities of ingredients is given to you at the bottom of this page.

My tips for successful homemade bounty

  • to easily handle the coconut bars before coating: respect the two cooling times in the freezer.
  • to allow a good coating, the chocolate should be very smooth. If necessary, reheat it after making half of the homemade bounty.
  • to look the same as the real bounty on top, use the tip of a spatula and make 3 successive strokes.

How to keep your house bounty?

As the coating is chocolate, I strongly advise you to keep them in the fridge. This will prevent them from melting. They can keep cool about 4-5 days in an airtight container.
