Choconut Bites

 

 

Choconut Bites
Bounty bars were a childhood favourite for me so I just had to find a way of making a healthier alternative for the occasional treat.

Ingredients
  1. 1 cups desiccated coconut
  2. 1/2 cup coconut milk (from a can)
  3. 2 - 3 tablespoons honey or Sweet Freedom
  4. 1 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
  5. 200gm good quality dark chocolate to coat - I like Green & Blacks 80% Dark or if you want these to be super healthy you can use the raw chocolate recipe (Peppermint Dream minus the peppermint oil).
Instructions
  1. Mix the desiccated coconut, coconut oil, coconut milk and honey or Sweet Freedom into a bowl and mix well.
  2. Once mixed take roughly about a teaspoon and roll into a ball.
  3. Place the ball onto a tray lined with baking parchment and repeat until all of the mixture is made into balls.
  4. Place the tray of coconut balls into the fridge for 15-30 minutes.
  5. Melt 2/3 of the chocolate over a bain marie when it is completely melted take the bowl of the bain marie and put the remaining chocolate into the bowl of melted chocolate.
  6. Mix until all the chocolate has melted. Doing this will temper the chocolate so you get a nice snap when you bite into it.
  7. Take the coconut balls and one by one dip into the melted chocolate using a folk and make sure the entire ball is coated.
  8. Let the excess chocolate drip off and then place on a parchment lined tray.
  9. When you've repeated this process with all the coconut balls place the tray in the fridge to allow the chocolate to set - they normally take about 15-20 minutes to set hard.
  10. Put your feet up and enjoy a little blast from the past without any guilt.
