I made this recipe last night and it turned out divine! I made a few alterations such as 1 tsp of coconut extract and 1 tsp of almond extract. Added 1/2 cup more of the unsweetened coconut flakes. Easy to roll and decorate:) Some I dipped into chocolate, others rolled in coconut, sprinkled with sugar, or designed with different colored melted chocolate on top! The outcome looks so professional - and make a great gift for anyone...
Great recipe. I added broken up coconut ice to some, dipped them in white choc then sprinkled with more pink coconut ice. Looked really festive. I used 1 tsp of coconut essence but would use more next time.
Hi! Can someone help me w/ the ingredients? I don't know (n can't find it) when u said icing sugar (do u mean powdered sugar?) , desiccated coconut or coconut essence? I really do want 2 make these 4 my mom but need help. Thank u.
Heavenly! I made these for Bird and she loved them stating they were "simply decadent." I used sweetened coconut as we can't find dessicated anywhere around here, and then reduced the sugar by 1/2. I also used coconut extract. The recipe was quite easy to follow and simple to put together. Thank you for sharing this superb upscale Mounds candy bar! ~Buddha
Yum yum yum yum yum!!!! These are fantastic!!! I am not a white chocolate lover but you honestly can't tell that there is white chocolate in these. I used the coconut essence. The recipe doesn't say where to mix in the Bailey's (which is what I used) so I mixed it in with the coconut essence. I used smaller pieces of coconut and it is really smooth. I lined a 9x13 baking dish with plastic wrap and poured it in to cool. I put it in the fridge for about an hour and then took it out and cut it into blocks. I then stuck it in the freezer for about 20 mins. I took it out of the freezer, rolled the cubes into balls and then stuck it back in the freezer for another 20 mins. I ended up rolling some in semisweet chocolate b/c I ran out of milk chocolate. The only problem I had was coating them but that isn't the recipe's fault. It is my first time making truffles and I don't quite have the knack of coating them and making them pretty yet. It is going to be great eating all of my practicing though!! YUM!!!!!
These are really good, I rolled them into balls then covered with chocolate, half with dark chocolate and the other half with milk chocolate. I used the coconut essence. Thanks for sharing.
These are just fantastic ... and loved by everyone that has tasted them ( I made them without the coconut essence). One comment made was that they are better than Bounty Bars. After making these several times, by request of those who previously tried them, I have now tried them with 3T of Tia Maria and another time with 3T Contreau ... both where a great mix ... thanks for this one it is constantly requested :o)
