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 traveled, 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!
