These Homemade Bounty Bar Truffles taste just like the Bounty Coconut and Chocolate Bar you’ve grown to love. Or you can make them into the Aussie classic: Coconut Ice.
While I have always enjoyed the sweet combination of juicy coconut flakes and milk chocolate in the Bounty bar, it was only recently that I discovered the Australian chocolate-free version of this tasty coconut treat: coconut ice.
Being the sucker for coconut that I am, I fell in love with it instantly and decided to make a more natural and less sugary version of the sweet that could be easily made into both coconut ice with its signature pink layer, and a Bounty truffle smothered in a thick layer of milk chocolate.
It took about four attempts to perfect the recipe (I wanted mine soft and just slightly chewy), but considering that each batch took only a few minutes to make, the “project” was more fun than hard work. And I am pleased to say the final result does taste like the coconut inside the Bounty! Yum!
