Homemade Mound's / Almond Joy - type deliciousnessMy sister was shocked to watch a recent Half Pint Hacks tasting video (here) in which Frederick mentioned that he’s never tasted a Mound’s bar.

“What!!?! That’s my favorite candy bar!”

“Ah, yes,” I said, “But have you ever had a homemade version?”

As if in foreshadowing this very post, the Half Pint Hacks offer a homemade version to you.

They just used a simple layering approach. You can get fancier and shape these into bars or in the little disc shapes (like a peanut butter cup) but the layers are, by far, the most simple approach to take, especially for a larger quantity.

Homemade Mound’s / Almond Joy Ingredients

  • 2 cups unsweetened coconut
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (liquid form)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate

Homemade Mound’s / Almond Joy Steps

  1. Place all of the ingredients except for the chocolate into a blender.
  2. Blend for about a minute, until mixed and a bit pasty. (The mixture will still be fairly dry but will press down nicely in a pan nonetheless.)
  3. Press and pat down mixture in a 9×9 baking dish.
  4. Place the dish in the freezer.
  5. Melt your chocolate slowly in a double boiler.
  6. Pour chocolate over the coconut layer. Freeze for about three hours.
  7. Slice into bars and serve.

Store these candies in the freezer for an instant and ready treat.
