I hope you are having a beautiful and restful Sunday. As everyday, we are getting ready for a thunderstorm here in South Florida. With it comes lots of water and what else: Mosquitos. It is getting really bad with all the rain we are having.
So I decided to stay inside and watch the games today. I am also preparing to make some mound bars. Who does not love mound bars, right?
For me Coconut and Chocolate = Mound Bars – Yummy!!! I always loved those Almond Mound Bars and also the regular ones without the almond in it.
But store bought mound bars contain more than just dark chocolate, coconut and maybe a little but of honey or maple syrup. So my husband brought me 85% Dark Chocolate and I have coconut flakes in the freezer. I put out the coconut flakes to defrost and then I am going to heat the chocolate and paint it into my silicone molds. After a few minutes in the freezer I will fill the molds with a mixture of coconut flakes and maple syrup. After heating chocolate again I am going to top the molds with another layer of chocolate and put them in the freezer for about an hour. As we like our chocolate frozen, I will keep the chocolate mounds in the freezer after I take them out of the silicone molds.
This is very easy to make and you can add an almond before you put in the coconut – maple syrup mixture.
Once I have them done I will add a few pictures. Ok, pictures are here 🙂
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
