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. how do you get the choc mixture to stick to the sides when you paint it on there to place into the freezer without it running back down the sides to the bottom?

  2. These are amazing! Here’s a small tip for those of you who do not have a mold. Simple roll out the coconut into mini candy bar sized pieces. With the melted chocolate in a pastry bag, pipe a bit of the chocolate onto a piece of parchment. Press the coconut piece into the chocolate and using the pastry bag, pipe just enough chocolate over the top to cover it completely. This gives it a smooth and seemless look without having to buy the molds. I sometimes drizzle a bit of white chocolate over it to give it a professional appearance. Hope that helps a bit!

    • Ahh good idea! I wanted to make these today and I don’t have molds. I was thinking of using mini muffin tins since I made “Reese’s Cups” in them before and it worked really well :)

      Maybe I’ll try both! Thanks for the suggestion

  3. Hello Elana,

    I work at and run a cooperative that is a vegan cafe, radical bookstore and organic grocery store. We rarely have treats that are gluten free and vegan, so I am so happy you posted these. We buy oskri bars that are almost identical. I was thinking of making a variation of these to sell but was wondering if you could give me some advice as to what the costs and selling price could be.

    • Hi Shannon! That sounds so exciting! Your pricing will be dependent on the cost of the ingredients you use for this. Good luck :-)

  4. you are inspiring me. i have been baking since i was 7 (over 40 years) and you are inspiring me to go to the “other side”. thanks to you (and a few other respected bloggers), i went out and purchased a plethora of various flours, sugars and oils.
    let’s see how i do….

    you r terrific! thanks for doing what you do.

    • Meg, click the green text that says “mounds candy mold” in the instructions portion of the recipe for that info :-)

  5. They look fantastic!! I’ve made something similar, however I did the filling first, rolled it into little balls and put it in the freezer. I then melted the chocolate and dipped the frozen filling into the chocolate. Very messy, and definitly didn’t look as great as yours, but tasted yummy!
