Mounds Candy Bars

Homemade Mounds Candy Bars are a healthy chocolate and coconut candy made with just 4 ingredients! To whip up a batch of your own all you need is dark chocolate, shredded coconut, coconut oil, and honey. We like serving homemade Mounds Candy Bars at our Halloween celebrations. They’re an amazing dessert for Valentine’s day and also a wonderful paleo treat for Purim.

With the blissful combination of chocolate and coconut, homemade Mounds Bars taste even better than the store-bought version! They’re far healthier too.

  1. Elana, thank you for posting this. This recipe rocks my world!
    I have tweaked the recipe a wee bit & make it simpler by just pressing the coconut mixture into a small glass pan and then putting the chocolate mixture on top with fresh roasted almonds. I have many “almond joy” lovers around me. This is also a super quick & well appreciated potluck item to make in a jiffy. I cut them in small squares from my little pan but I double the recipe. (:
    Thanks again!

  2. You look like a refined version of Sandra Bullock. And I think she’s beautiful.
    Just found your site and loving all the posts and recipes.
    Thanks for taking the time to share.

  3. I used condensed cream instead of the coconut oil and honey. Not quite mounds, will try your recipe, sounds good and so much better for me.

  4. Hi Elana, these look so delicious! No time to make them this year, sadly, but I’ve reblogged on my site, and will definitely be making them soon. Thank you for you wonderful recipes!

  5. Made this into little bite size pieces that I just drizzled the chocolate frosting on and all my sugar-loving friends thought it was the best! It is. The best. Thank you for your creativity and wonderful blending of flavors.

  6. If you don’t want to bother with candy molds, handshape the coconut mixture into small bars, pop them in the freezer until chilled, then dip in chocolate. Same ingredients, different method. Both delicious!
