Chocolate Bounty Balls
These taste just as good as real bounty bars, like the ones I used to eat when I was little; except these are not full of preservatives or refined sugar.
For the filling - 1/4 cup coconut cream 1 Tablespoon of raw organic maple syrup 1/2 cup cashews 1 1/3 cups of desiccated coconut (shredded also works) 2 Tablespoons coconut oil
For the outside coating -
1 Tablespoon of raw organic maple syrup 2 Tablespoons cacao powder 2 Tablespoons coconut oil 1/4 cup desiccated coconut
1: Place coconut cream, maple syrup, cashews, coconut and coconut oil in a blender or food processor. Blend until ingredients are combined. They will be a paste like consistency (similar to hummus), when this happens you can remove from the blender. 2: Roll the coconut mixture into balls and place into the freezer on a lined baking tray. The mixture should make 12 - 15 balls.
Off to the freezer...
3: Time to make the chocolate coating. If your coconut oil isn't warm enough to be in its liquid state then melt it under the tap in its jar with hot water or place into a small pan and melt. Once done let it cool for a minute or two and combine with cacao powder and maple syrup.
4: Take the balls out of the freezer; if they are hard dip into the chocolate mixture and place back onto the baking paper. Repeat with all of the balls. Place into the freezer.
5: Repeat step 4 again so that the chocolate mixture is thick. The second time you have dipped the balls into chocolate roll in some desiccated coconut. Place back onto lined baking tray and let the balls set. Once hard remove and store in a container in the freezer.
