200ml (2/3 cup) condensed milk
70g (3/4 cup) icing sugar
220g (2.5 cups) sweetened coconut

In this video recipe Barry and James show you how to make homemade bounty bars. These amazing chocolate coconut chocolate bars are extremely easy to make and need just 4 ingredients.

Now I am not sure if you can get these in the UK only, or all around the World but Bounty bars are essentially chocolate covered coconut bars and are super tasty treats. The fact that you can make them with such minimal ingredients and into any shape you like is a real winner. I quite liked the idea of turning them into ball shapes but instead for this video James and I went for the classic curved rectangular shape.

All you need to do is combine together in a mixing bowl the icing sugar, with the coconut, mix gently so that the icing does not go everywhere, then gradually pour in the condensed milk. Mix this through and the mixture will thicken up considerably almost to the texture of coconut play doh! This now makes it easy to mould with your hands so grab some cold water and shape the coconut any way you like (rectangles are the traditional shape) and sit on a lined baking tray.

Stick this tray in the fridge for 30 minutes, these nuggets of coconut will firm up considerably! Meanwhile melt the chocolate over a pan of simmering water.

Take the chilled coconut from the fridge and roll them one by one in the chocolate using forks to lift out and place on a tray to drip off any excess.

Stick these back in the fridge for at least 30 minutes for the chocolate to set and harden then gobble away, super easy nostalgic homemade bounty bars ready for you to try!

If you are a big fan of homemade confectionary why not try these homemade ferrero rocher or the recently uploaded homemade iced gems, both very fun and tasty!
