Raw Bounty Bites

 

IMG_1088

I don’t remember when I first ate a Bounty chocolate bar.  All I  know is that to date,  if I see one, it takes all my will power not to buy a couple of them and tear into them immediately.  It doesn’t even matter that I find them  sickeningly sweet now.  Sometimes I think its the nostalgia  they  evoke, after all food is about places travelled, people we’ve met, the fun times we’ve had.  See how philosophical a Bounty bar can make me?  But its time to make new memories with old tastes and so these updated snazzy Raw Bounty Bites….

Statutory warning: Picture heavy post!

These little delightful nuggets are so fun to make.  Just five ingredients …..no cooking, no mixers or blenders.  Just dump everything in a bowl, mix it up, shape into little balls, freeze.  Next morning a simple dip ( or two!) in melted chocolate and you’re done!  This is an immensely enjoyable  candy-making project with kids and your friends too.

Can we please stop for a minute and talk about the taste?  We have a  sweet, sticky, gooey coconut filling covered with  really dark chocolate…that tastes much better than the real thing.  It was so good that I had to make another batch even before I was done taking pictures!  We were going for a half eaten ball kinda thing !!  With no unhealthy or processed ingredient, its a perfect guilt-free fix for that afternoon slump or dessert craving or those exam days when the daughter is ravenously hungry all the time!

So go ahead my friends, give it a try, make new delicious healthy memories!

Looks scrumptious! Is there any replacement for cashew butter? And which brand chocolate have you used?

Surbhi Garg

Thank you so much! Will surely let you know how it turns out! Just tell me one more thing…you have used coconut oil in many of your recipes…could you please tell me the brand? And where from in Gurgaon?
