These Chocolate Coconut bounty balls remind me of childhood, but without being loaded with unhealthy fats and sugar (did you know that a shop-bought mars bounty bar is almost 50% processed sugar, which is enough to severely hamper your immune system for the day, making your body vulnerable to infection).  These balls contain a delicious raw chocolate covering with a sweet white chocolate coconut bounty centre. If you love the combination of milk and white chocolate and coconut then these balls are a must. Not only are they delicious, they are highly nutritious, offering the right balance of chocolate, sweetness and healthy fats from the coconut. 

Ingredients:

    1. White coconut chocolate centre ingredients

 

  1. Raw milk chocolate ingredients

 

Directions:

    1. Make the white coconut chocolate centre first.
      • Melt the first 3 ingredients in a double boiler until it becomes a smooth white paste.
      • *If you don’t have coconut cream to hand you can use a cold can of coconut milk by scraping the thick cream at the top and discarding the liquid.
      • Add the desiccated coconut and stevia and mix thoroughly.
      • Refrigerate for 10 minutes and then roll into balls and place back in the fridge until the next step is complete.

 

  1. Make the (raw) milk chocolate.
    • Melt the cacao butter in a double boiler over a low heat trying not to exceed 42° C (if you want to make raw chocolate which retains the nutritional goodness of the chocolate).
    • Ground the sugar
