Raw Mounds Bars

Pin It!

Who doesn’t love Mounds Bars???

I could’ve simply included these raw mounds bars as a variation in the Raw Macaroon post.

But they’re just way too good to be a side note. Chocolate always deserves its own post, don’t you think?

Besides, the Mounds Bar was one of my favorite candy bars as a kid.  (I also loved Reeses peanut butter cups.)

Raw Mounds Bars

  • 80g dates (scant 2/3 cup)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cacao bliss or Homemade Chocolate Butter
  • Optional: shredded coconut, chopped almonds, cocoa powder, or almond extract (for Almond Joy babies)

A few readers have successfully subbed coconut oil for the coconut butter, but I haven’t tried it. Blend, using a small blending gadget. (I use the Magic Bullet short cup. Or you can triple the ingredients and use a food processor. It might be too sticky in a blender.) Form in shapes of your choice. You can use the plastic bag trick. If you find the mixture too crumbly, put the bag in the fridge for a while before forming shapes. Due to the melty nature of coconut butter, store the Babies in the fridge or freezer (that is if ya don’t eat them all first!).

    oh Katie, sweet sweet Katie — you have officially stolen my heart with those fudge PB sammies.. I am officially obsessed with you.

    Mounds were one of my fav. candies as a youngin — fortunately, my brother hated them so we always traded around halloween time.. I gave him all my dum dums 🙂 such an unfair exchange but he was young and I took advantage of his ignorance… 😡

    happy day to you beauty queen!

  17. Darn right chocolate always deserves its own post! Chocolate deserves its own blog, its own day of celebration, its own whatever it wants! (Can you tell I love chocolate? I think so!)

    You have such a gorgeous family, Katie! You are the greatest mom….but I kind of want to eat all of your children!

  18. I agree…mounds and peanut butter cups are my favorite milk chocolate indulges. Now however I prefer dark chocolate. These creations look great!
