Guest Post - Home Made Bounty Bars

I met Laura and Tia a few years back when they attended several craft classes I ran in Brighton, I could tell from the off these two were not just your average novice crafters but had big plans for their newly found skills. Over the last few years we have become close friends and crafting allies! These Ladies really do take making to the next level and are a constant inspiration. I mean, running a successful blog with 3 children under 2 years old between them in tow! Pretty fantastic i'd say.

This is a lovely post with a recipe that can be altered slightly for vegans readers too... Replace condensed milk with the cream of 1 can of coconut milk whipped with 1oz icing sugar and the milk chocolate with dark/dairy free, Hey presto!

This has to be the easiest chocolate bar replica ever. We've tried Daim BarsCreme Eggs and now it's the turn of the Bounty Bar. The great thing about this non-bake recipe, is how quickly they can be made.

To make 12 of these bars you will need:

  • 1 can of condensed milk
  • 200g desiccated coconut
  • 300g milk chocolate

 Begin by mixing the condensed milk and desiccated coconut together in a bowl using a spoon.

Scoop out a spoonful of the mixture and shape it into a bar, repeat for all 12 bars placing them on a lined baking tray. Pop them in the fridge for 30 minutes, for the bars to set a little.

Melt half the chocolate in a bowl over the hob. Allow to cool but not harden, then spread over the bars. Leave to harden in the fridge.


Melt the remaining chocolate, then spoon it onto the bars, filling in any gaps where you can see coconut, then smooth the top and sides with a knife.

Pop in the fridge to harden again - and you're ready to eat.
