Healthy Homemade Mounds Candy

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Using a small saucepan, gently heat coconut oil and shredded coconut on low heat. The shredded coconut will begin to “puff” up after a few minutes in the warm oil. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. In a food processor, process dates, vanilla and salt until creamy and smooth.
  3. Mix coconut mixture with date mixture. Pour into a small, bread loaf size pan. Place in freezer for an hour or until set.
  4. Gently heat dark chocolate in a small saucepan on low heat. You can also use a double broiler to melt the chocolate. While chocolate is melting, cut the coconut candy into “mound” size pieces. I cut mine into even squares, then cut them in half again. These taste great without the chocolate too!
  5. Dip coconut candy into melted chocolate and then place them carefully on parchment paper. Refrigerate the candy until it is set, 30-45 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
