Copycat Mounds Bars

Sweet coconut filling, surrounded by a rich chocolate shell. With healthy fats and fiber. One bite, and you will never miss the corn syrup, hydrolyzed milk protein, or artificial ingredients present in store-bought Mounds bars. All you will taste is the sweet coconut filling.

And the rich chocolate shell.

  • 1 cup shredded coconut (unsweetened) (80g)
  • 3 1/2 to 4 tbsp agave or pure maple syrup (48g) (or 3 tbsp water and 2-3 nunaturals stevia packs)
  • 2 tbsp virgin coconut oil (20g) (See nutrition info link below, for all substitution notes on this recipe.)
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup plus 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder (22g)
  • a few stevia drops, or up to 1 1/2 tsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup liquid virgin coconut oil (Or omit these last three ingredients and simply melt 2/3 cup chocolate chips instead.) (57g)


Homemade Mounds Bars: Combine first 5 ingredients in a food processor. (You can try to mix by hand if you don’t have a food processor, but the dough won’t stick together as well.) Press the filling into the bottoms of mini muffin cups. (Press HARD!) Freeze at least 25 minutes. Meanwhile, make the chocolate coating by mixing the last three ingredients together to make a thin sauce. Line a tray with wax or parchment paper, then pop out the now-hardened coconut treats and coat in chocolate. Immediately put them in the fridge or freezer, as coconut oil melts when warm. These last at least a week.

Were you affected by the hurricane at all?

I have a lot of friends and family up in the northeast, and my facebook news feed (not to mention the tv news) is inundated with photos of cars submerged in water, fallen trees, surging waves… everyone on the East Coast is in my thoughts. Please stay safe. Link of the Day:

    That looks sooo yummy!! I can’t wait to try it :)

  2. I’ve never had a mounds bar before but, by looking at the ingdient list here, I would love them! The only time I like coconut is with chocolate so this is perfect!

  3. Ed says:

    Sounds good to me…have a few to send my way? lol

    1. Ha! Like there’d be any left ;).

  4. Anonymous says:

    My husband went to high school with Claudene Christian the woman who died at sea sailing the HMS Bounty. She was someone he cared very much for.

    1. I’m so sorry. I’m sending good thoughts your way, although I’m sure that doesn’t really help or make you feel better.

    2. Samantha says:

      Goodness I am sorry. The entire storm and associated loss has been stressful for me and I am no where near the area.

  5. Eric Jaffa says:

    RE “coat in chocolate”

    How do you get as much chocolate where the filling is being held during the coating as on the rest of the filling?

    1. You can use a fork to dip, or pour it over top while on a slotted baking tray with a bowl underneath. But if you can tell from the photos, the bottoms of my mounds bars don’t have as much chocolate as the tops.

  6. Never heard of Mound bars before today! They almost look like ice cream bars…. But with coconut!

    I don’t live on the coast, so I don’t know anyone who has been affected. My mom and brother had school delays though from the winds. They were very excited.

    1. Eric Jaffa says:

      Haven’t you ever heard this TV ad jingle?

      “Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t. Almond Joy has nuts. Mounds don’t. Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t.”

      1. My dad always sings the “Somtimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t” part. around our house. I once asked him where it came from and he couldn’t remember… Haha. So, the answer to your question is yes and no. Now I need to go find that commercial on youtube!

      2. Eric Jaffa says:

        Here is a version of theA lmond Joy & Mounds jingle from the 1970s:

  7. Sooze says:

    these look amazing!!

  8. Anna Banana says:

    These look totally fantastic. I’m tragically out of chocolate chips (and the homemade chocolate bars are just too bitter for my tastes), so I guess I’ll have to wait to make them another week.

    My family all lives in New England (that’s where I’m from), but from the sound of it all my relatives are doing okay. Still waiting for a bunch of my friends that are scattered through New York City, Long Island, New Jersey, and Virginia. Hopefully everyone will have stayed safe.

  9. Meagan says:

    Besides chocolate and peanut butter,chocolate and coconut is my absolute favorite combination!! I have been so very sad,since turning vegan,knowing that I can’t have my beloved Mounds. I knew there would be a way to make them,but hadn’t had the chance to figure it out. I’m so glad you did!!! Thank you!! I will be making these and often.

  10. Mounds are one of my all time fave Halloween candies! These look outstanding. I’m going to have to add almonds too for a dark chocolate Almond Joy (why don’t they make those anyway??)

    Believe it or not WI has been affected by Sandy. Lake Michigan is experiencing 15 ft. waves on Milwaukee’s shore.

    Stay safe all!

    1. I saw that on the news. People were surfing!

  11. My aunt and cousins live in Maryland, but they’re all fine. They have power and I haven’t heard yet how bad their basement is leaking. (Hopefully it isn’t too much, due to the fact that they don’t even have a sump pump. Last I heard, they were trying to suck water up with their vacuum. ;P) Perhaps some Mounds will cheer them up. 😉

  12. Oh wow these do look delicious! And I bet they’re way better than the actual candy!

  13. Sabrina says:

    Wow this is my all time favorite candy – I was hoping you’d post a recipe for these! Thanks Katie!

  14. Michele says:

    Katie, did you mean to mix the top ingredients together (up to cacao powder) separate from the bottom three? These look great .. might try them today .. and will sub coconut butter for oil in the coconut mix. Have you ever tried cacao butter for making the chocolate shell? It may hold up better than coconut oil in room temp.

    Currently live in central VA and rode out the storm. Did not lose power so just watched tv last night and went to bed. Still had power in the a.m. but after checking things out, it seems some of my neighbors closer to the foothills had outages. Looks like the coast took the brunt. The freak ‘derecho’ in July walloped this area much worse than this hurri-storm.

    1. Ooh yikes, thanks for catching that!
      I have some cacao butter… so far I’ve only used it for making white chocolate, though.

  15. It’s like the chocolate bar “bounty”! Nice!

  16. kris says:

    i’ve never actually had a mounds bar, but these look SO delicious. And i’m sure they’re wayy better tasting than mounds 😉

  17. Oh yum, these look fantastic Katie! My dad would love this recipe! :)

  18. Love this! I can just add an almond for a Almond joy version too! Great recipe Katie! 😉

  19. Jenica says:

    These look great Katie. I’m in ct and mostly unscathed but the wind is still howling something fierce.

  20. Nikki says:

    I live in FL and the hurricane helped pull out the humidity, it’s very nice here these days :o)

  21. Alicia says:

    Just made ’em with my two kiddos who are home from school today, and we are loving them!

    It’s so funny because last night, when we already knew the school was cancelled, we were planning what we would do today and I jokingly said we should wait until we see what Chocolate Covered Katie posts tomorrow, and then make that. Well lo and behold, that’s exactly what happened. Luckily we had all the ingredients, probably because we make so many others of your recipes. Our house is always stocked with cocoa powder, coconut, and coconut oil now! 😉

    I don’t think my youngest has ever had a Mounds bar, but BOTH kids gave these “4 thumbs up” in their words.

  22. I’ve never been much of a fan of mounds bars, but I’ve really taking a liking to coconut here lately. I may need to give them another chance!

  23. Courtney says:

    You fiend! I was only coming onto your blog to write down what I need to make your Butterfingers, and now I see a recipe for Mounds? I cannot resist. And I can’t not make the Butterfingers, because I’ve been drooling over them ever since it was posted. So now I have to make both. Tonight. THANKS. <3

  24. Eliza says:

    These are amazing. I literally stopped what I was doing (checking email) to start a batch. My husband even liked them (especially the chocolate layer), and he polished off a box of Rainbow Nerds yesterday!

  25. laura says:

    it looks tasty im going to have to try that
    text for free at

  26. Robin Newberger says:

    I’m going to try these today. I have every ingredient in my pantry, so it must be serendipity. We are trying to switch over to healthy foods but we have a sweet tooth. So glad we found you!

  27. I’m thinking Mounds bars are like an equivalent of the UK Bounty bars or do you guys get those too? Either way it’s all good to me :-)

    1. Samantha says:

      I have totally had a Bounty Bar but I can’t remember when or why? Maybe when I traveled to Germany? Anyway, I suspect they are roughly the same.

    2. Ivy says:

      We have a little British section of our supermarket–and I’ve seen Bounty bars there. I get the Fry’s chocolate bars filled with mint. Those seem to be the only vegan British chocolate bars.

  28. Alanna says:

    These sound yummy! As for the hurricane, I’m currently stuck in Miami for 2-3 days because our return flight from vacation to Philly was cancelled. Thankfully we’re safe and my friends and family at home are safe as well, but looking forward to getting back to make sure my house is okay after the high winds and rain!

  29. Mallory says:

    I’m drooling…

  30. Barry says:

    For some of you who never heard of mounds, you are in for a treat. They were always one of my favorites growing up – actually almond joys were my favorite, which was essentially a mounds with almonds right under the top coating of chocolate :)

    CCK, do you see any problem just popping some almonds on the top of the filling before pouring on the chocolate to get some healthy almond joys?

  31. katy sparrow says:

    Yummmzz these look deelish can’t wait to make! I am in upstate NY and we had some high winds, my screen porch door came off!

  32. Laura says:

    I came on here all excited thinking I was the first one to try them. Then I found out two people have already tried them before me.
    I made a double batch (I KNEW they were gonna be good) and boy am I glad I did! My daughter kept wanting to eat the coconut filling before we even got it in the muffin tins.
    Definitely a winner!

  33. Kelli says:

    There is no way in heck these would last a week…not in this house, lol. I’m going to have to try these right after I try the butterfinger bars I finally remembered to buy the molasses for.

  34. Sarah the official CCK drooler @RomneyRyan2012 says:

    Yep, right in the path of Sandy here in VA. wasn’t much though. My old neighbors in my hometown of Brooklyn tell me otherwise. Half of NYC are my friends and family (not literally). today was a crazy back and forth of phone calls and ” ARE YOU OK??!!”
    in other news, these look crazy good. And if I didn’t finish my cocoa powder, I’d try ’em too. bummer.

  35. cucicucicoo says:

    yummmm!! i’ve always LOVED mounds! can’t wait to try this!

    katie, i have a question about stevia. i have a little bottle of powdered stevia (not packets). is there any rule regarding how to substitute it in recipes for liquid stevia? thanks so much! :) lisa

  36. Lia says:

    Yummm! These look easy and good, like most of your recipes. I’m putting together a bunch or tasty recipes to send to my BF while he’s in Americorps and these just made the list. Thanks!

    Regarding your question: His team might be sent out there for clean up help/disaster relief, and my mom’s in southern CT, but she seems to have maintained her power and grace as usual.

  37. Anonymous says:

    Those sounds so good. I had never heard of mounds before this month. In Canada they have two chocolate bars similar to mounds: Coconut ( and Bounty ( 😀

  38. Leah says:

    YUM! This is exactly what I need, coming out of Sandy (thank gd, mostly intact). Thanks for sharing!

  39. Laura says:

    We techinically aren’t affected by the hurricane, because we live in the midwest, but one of our power lines had a sympathy pain and came down last night(as well as the power turning off for a few hours..)

    I actually don’t like Mounds, because I don’t like coconut, but my mom LOVES them, so maybe I will have to make some just for her. :)

  40. We got hit by the hurricane here in Rochester, NY but it wasn’t nearly as bad as they said it was going to be. Thankfully, we didn’t have any big trees near us so damage to our house or cars like many others in the area. These look yummy! Love mounds bars.

  41. Melodie says:

    YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A healthy version of my favorite candy bar! Thanks Katie!!

  42. Chowvida says:

    Cool! I recently made a healthy vegan version of Almond joys! Check them out on my blog
    Gonna try your mounds recipe, too! :)

  43. Making me hungry once again… 😉

  44. Courtney says:

    Just made these – so good! I used sweetened coconut (my grocery store doesn’t sell unsweetened) and it was just fine. The sweetened coconut +agave made it pretty sweet, like as sweet as a real Mounds bar. I might use a little less agave next time, but it tasting exactly like a real Mounds was not the worst thing that ever happened to me : D

    Also, I don’t have a food processor. I tried using a few pulses on my blender, but wasn’t having any luck, so I just put the mix in a bowl and mixed it with my hands. I also don’t have muffin tins of any size, so I used ice cube trays.

    They’re so good! Just in time for Halloween.

    1. Katy says:

      Good to know! I am also going to make with sweetened because its all my grocery store carries. Next time I am at WF I’ll pick up a back of unsweetened. I’ll take your advice and use less agave.

  45. Kristin says:

    Katie these look amazing! Just a quick question though, about how many servings is this recipe, I can’t see it anywhere and would like to know before I try it out so that I get the size right.

    I live in Australia, but my brother is in NYC at the moment, only about 4 blocks from where that transformer exploded on 14th St! So we’ve all been a bit worried, but him and his friends are all okay, just without power.

  46. AnnR says:

    I just had a failed attempt at making homemade coconut butter the other evening. It was almost there… then my not so expensive (ok, cheap!) food processor began to smoke! But I choose to look on the bright side – I now have several cups of delicious creamy finely ground coconut. I had a yummy pina colada smoothie this morning, and now I already have a head start on this recipe!
    I live on the “Wisconsin Coast” just north of Chicago. We’ve had strong winds and huge waves, a little flooding, but nothing like the East Coast. I can put up with Wisconsin snow this winter without any complaints after seeing what others have gone through.

  47. Sally says:

    These remind me of Bounty Bars, I’ve never heard of Mound Bars but these look great. I love Coconut with Chocolate. Now I’m craving a Bounty. 😀

  48. Bek @ Crave says:

    These remind me of bounty bars in Aus!

  49. Lisa H. says:

    Hi Katie,

    Just made these yesterday and they are Awesome. I used the enjoy life chocolate chips for the chocolate coating. Thanks for all the great recipes!!

    Lisa H.

  50. Rachel says:

    How many does this make? Would love if you could consistently include that information in your recipes… there are quite a few recipes that I would like to make but have no idea how many I will get. Thanks!!

  51. Hannah H. says:

    OHMYGOODNESS!!!! My sister and I were just talking about not being able to eat Almond Joy/Mounds bars. My mom makes delicious homemade ones, but they are chocked full of sugar (which, unfortunately, my body cannot tolerate). I will be making these asap!

    I live in Northern Virginia., but we thankfully made it through just fine.

  52. Amanda says:

    Happy Halloween!! 😉

  53. Ivy says:

    Katie, these look phenomenal! Thank you!

    I live in Florida and the weather has been great. My mom and sis live on Long Island. The basement of my mom’s neighbor’s house is full to the brim with water, and going into the kitchen and the rest of the house. So since it’s her nextdoor neighor, she’s likely getting the same. 90% of Long Island doesn’t have power. A tree is blocking the street. She hasn’t been home because of the evacuation, etc.

  54. These look delic! I used to love Almond Joy’s and Mounds bars but haven’t had them in years… I recently bought a bag of unsweetened coconut and haven’t been able to stop sprinkling a little on everything and have developed a strong craving for a candy bar… Perfect timing so I don’t indulge on Halloween candy!

  55. kate says:

    I live in ocean county nj…the worst of is so bad lucky i have my house..many of my friends dont. Its very sad.

  56. Kylee Bergin says:

    I’m gonna make these and the butterfingers tonight to hop on the candy wagon for halloween :) I will be using sweetened coconut bc I already have it.. maybe I’ll use less agave. Thanks for the recipe!

  57. Every single recipe I see of yours (especially these copycat/healthier version ones) I just think that you’re a genius! Love it!

  58. Julia says:

    Just started into the world of vegetarianism and a friend of mine sent m your link to help me along the way. This is the first post I have read and am already excited about what I can learn through you. THANK YOU!

  59. Anonymous says:

    The only way I would change this is to plop an almond inside the coconut “dough” before I freeze it. I have friends on the east coast… still haven’t heard from them! :(

  60. Karina says:

    I am currently addicted to these bars which are called Coconut Seceret bars. They are made of coconut, and sweetened with coconut nectar. These look like they probably taste similar, which makes me excited because Coconut Seceret bars cost over two dollars each!

  61. lemoncurd says:

    I made these last night, modifying them to make up for my lack of coconut oil. You can swap butter for the coconut oil in the filling and the shell, but the filling will not taste as coconutty (and the recipe will not be vegan). I used light maple syrup for the filling and it was delicious. If you want to give the filling a little spice, diverging from the typical “mounds” taste, cardamom is a classic combination with coconut. I made the shell with semi-sweet chip-its and it was still too sweet for my taste – splurge on better quality dark chocolate if you can afford it.

  62. lemoncurd says:

    p.s. thanks for the recipe – I’d been craving a coconut treat for weeks and this fit the bill perfectly!

  63. IC says:

    Okay, so I finally made your coconut butter (ordered a mass shipment from Amazon… 12 packs of Organic Unsweetened Coconut flakes for like $24). So I made that using a food processor… it came out okay (not very butter-like but good).

    So I decided that since it was more like a mound bar texture I would take a quick spin on the above. I pushed down my attempt-at-coconut-butter into little molds (aka your coconut melties), made your three ingredient chocolate (using less coconut oil, more cocoa, and very little sweetener… like you I don’t like overly sweet), and spooned some chocolate on top of the coconut molds. Refrigerated. Removed. Tested… smile :) Even my husband (who’s motto is “Preservatives preserve me and keep me looking young”) said they were good! Def want to try again with a raw almonds lightly coated with watered down agave. Yum! Almond Joy vs Mounds :)

    Thanks again!

  64. Ali says:

    I made these last night and absolutely loved them! the only thing is it took a lot of stevia drops to get the chocolate sweet enough. For those who can’t have sugar I recommend using unsweetened coconut nectar. It added sweetness and coconut flavor (perfect for this recipe!) If you do add it, microwave it for a few seconds before as it is very thick and made the chocolate sauce a bit too thick to stick to the coconut balls. Definitely making these again!

  65. Kris says:

    WOW, these are are really unbelievable, thank you for a great recipe. I am not telling anyone I made these, at least not the first batch.

  66. Mary says:

    So I didnt have the coconut oil because soooomeone threw it out (boo), and I read your note about there not being a substitute for it. So I just skipped it and I made a layer of squished coconut stuff on the bottom, and melted some chocolate chips and poured them over the top. They are excellent….and they are disappearing fast. haha.

  67. I’m normally not a fan of coconut, but I would eat these ALL DAY EVERY DAY LIKE A MAD WOMAN!!!! Thanks! ~

  68. Cari says:

    Hi Katie,
    We LOVE LOVE LOVE your recipes! Quick question for the coconut oil. In recipes when you just state ‘coconut oil’ (such as the coconut filling for this recipe) do you use it in solid or liquid form? I’m making these now and just melted the oil but now wondering if I should have left it solid? What do you do?

    1. Robin Newberger says:

      Solid coconut oil for the mixture and I melted coconut oil for the chocolate sauce.

  69. Robin Newberger says:

    I made these and they are amazing. I erred on the side of using the higher amount of maple syrup and it was too much. So a word of caution that, at least in my case, it affected the consistency of the coconut balls. I’m making a new batch with less maple syrup and they will be perfect. I was wondering how Katie got hers so white if she’s maple syrup (and isn’t agave also brown?). Mine turned tan. I made the chocolate sauce instead of melting chocolate and it too is delicious. These are super easy to make.

    1. Em says:

      Use light agave, and they’ll be white like in the photo.

      1. Robin Newberger says:


  70. Valerie Morris says:

    Do I need to heat the coconut oil to a liquid first, or do I leave it a solid? I am going to try these for Thanksgiving and put almonds in them..because yes, I am a Nut! 😉

    1. Em says:

      I heated mine first.

  71. Teresa says:

    These were so so good I love coconut so go figure! I tried the mini muffin tins but once I got them out I ended up shaping them a little myself. These are going on the Xmas cookie list!!

  72. Julia Smith says:

    Mmmm these are amazing! So rich and delicious! Thank you so much for this awesome recipe! :)

  73. Deb says:

    Yum! These are as fun to make as they are to eat!

    I figured out a way to prep these using silicon molds that made the chocolate-covering process pretty darn easy:
    1. I made the coconut filling and stuck it in the freezer (bowl, spoon and all) for a few minutes
    2. Then, I made the chocolate and put about a spoonful into each of the slots of the molds.
    3. I then took my coconut mixture from the freezer, and spooned a blob or so on top of the chocolate bottom layers.
    4. Last, I put a final chocolate layer on each of the pieces, and topped the mold with a sheet of parchment paper, and applied pressure with a spoon to squish all the layers together. (I may have also sung a bit during the process, but that step is optional.)
    5. I put the molds in the freezer for a few hours and then popped them out, one by glorious one.
    6. Smiled that these actually ended up looking kind of professional; smiled even more as I took the first bite of these yummy creations! :)

  74. emily says:

    Looking forward to making this recipe!
    I’m also trying to link to the three-ingredient chocolate bars but there’s a problem with the link, Katie can you help me?

  75. April says:

    I made these tonight. I used sweetened coconut and maple syrup. I didn’t use my food processor because I’m lazy and it still worked out well. However, after freezing them, make sure you let them sit out for about 5 minutes before trying to get them out of the muffin pan or they won’t completely come out. I also used less coconut oil in the chocolate coating as I was afraid it would be too thin. They are very good, but the chocolate melts when holding it in your hand eating it. Oh well… you just get to lick your fingers then! :)

  76. Anonymous says:

    The healthy mounds bars are wonderful!

  77. Amy Ree says:

    These were so easy to make and my husband LOVED them. Thank you, Katie for all your great recipes. Every one I’ve tried has been awesome!

  78. Amy Ree says:

    These were so easy to make and my husband loved them. Thanks, Katie!

  79. jess says:

    Yum! I found ice cubes worked really well instead of mini muffin cups, made nice bite sized pieces :) Not sure what the original coconut mound bars are like as I am from New Zealand and we don’t have them, but these are so good who needs the original 😉

  80. Anonymous says:

    We just whipped up 1/2 recipe, portioned them using a small cookie scoop, and then rolled them in the coating; we couldn’t wait to melt the coconut oil to liquid, so I just threw the cocoa, syrup, coconut oil in the FP and didn’t bother pouring. They didn’t last long! Saving the last one for their father :)

  81. Chow Ches says:

    I will absolutely be making these!!! Probably with almonds… I do miss Almond Joy. 😉

  82. Marilyn D says:

    I appreciate your work very much because it’s important to me to take care of my body. I mostly eat healthfully, but on the occasion that I eat refined foods, I don’t feel well. When I have healthy sweets, I’m fine. Thank you for all the work you’ve done to create these recipes and design and organize this attractive site.

  83. Marie Ward says:

    All of your recipes looks so good. I have not made any yet But wonder if you bake gluten free bread. I have not found a good loaf yet? And I really miss my sandwiches

    1. Sorry, I’ve never actually tried baking gluten-free bread :(

  84. maria says:

    these look amazing! I was wondering if it would be ok to replace the liquid sweeteners in your recipes with coconut nectar? I have blood sugar problems and even a little maple syrup or other sugars set me off…

  85. Barbara Gabbe-Harris says:

    Hi Katie – I am so totally obsessed with your website and all of these fabulous recipes … today I Made these …the mounds bars … love them! turned out so great! and today I just learned my daughter got engaged! A happy day! so, I have a question – my daughter Lauren loves coconut. I was thinking of making up a little package of some of your delicious goodies that I have made to send to her ….. it would be overnight. Do you have any suggestions as to what would travel well as an overnight package? I would love to send the mounds bars but I think they might melt and be a total mess when they arrive. so, do you have any suggestions? Thank you so much. barbara

    1. Congratulations to her :)
      As for something that would ship well… A lot of the recipes would unfortunately melt, but the German Chocolate Fudge Babies ship really well!

  86. Alisea says:

    wow.. these look delicious..
    it’s not often I see such a delicious recipe that I actually have all the ingredients for! woo thank you so much, gonna try these out tonight!

  87. Donna says:

    These are amazing! I just made a batch using agave, and they are better than the real thing. Telling all my friends.

  88. Olivia says:

    I am in the process of making these and I didn’t have the muffin cups so I just put them in a cupcake mold they ended up not coming out so I just put chocolate on top and didn’t put chocolate all over like a real mounds bar.So I guess they will be “mounds frozen muffins”hey! That doesn’t mean they won’t taste good!<3

    1. Olivia says:

      It’s Olivia again!
      The muffin idea worked great!

  89. Rebecca says:

    I want to buy a mini muffin pan so that I can make these, but I’m wondering… Will they “pop” out of a metal tray, or do I need to buy a silicon one? They look delicious!!! I love your coconut crack bars so I know these will be great :)

    1. Unofficial CCK Helper says:

      Nope, a regular tin is fine! The coconut oil is smooth and will make them pop out.

        Just made them and they are fantastic. I ended up buying a silicon one before the reply came anyways. I used the coconut cocoa chocolate instead of melting chocolate chips, and they are perfect. Thanks!

    Wow, what a recipe. These copycat mounds bars are definitely in my future. I have been reading a lot of recipes and you have made a new fan out of me. It is so refreshing to see ideas like this that I will actually allow myself to eat. Incredible, just incredible. I started saving pages on my desktop to go back to but they are starting to build up so much I might as well delete them all and just browse the site anytime I have time to make something. I wanted to answer a few of your “Questions of the Day” but I got distracted by your “Links of the Day” or the “You might also like:” Maybe I will see them again and say something the second time around. Anyway, Happy Eating! And keep up the good work!

    Just made these. They are fantastic! I can’t wait to make them again, maybe topped with some almonds or a dash of almond extract.

    Made these again for the 2nd time. I might just have to make them every week. They’re amazingly delicious! I rolled them into balls this time before coating them in the chocolate, just for something a little different. I made small enough balls to make 25. One tiny ball is enough to satisfy my sweet tooth :) LOVE THESE!!!

    My son and I made these tonight and failed miserably. Do you spray the muffin tin before? We could not get the filling out and then the chocolate was not smooth at all. ARUGH!!!

      Important! Did you make any substitutions or mistakenly use refined coconut oil? The virgin coconut oil makes it smooth enough that it does not stick. If the chocolate is thick, gently heat it until it is thin again.

    Oh my gosh. Making these today. Thank you for the Healthy Halloween Treats post. This has me on a scavenger hunt pinning recipes all over your site. It all looks so good! I think this will be the first thing I try though. Noms.

    Could I use the same amount of Hershey special dark cocoa powder? Or would they be too bitter?

    Hubby made these for me today. FANTASTIC! Two changes – we used less sweetener (and probably will even add less next time) and I told him he could be lazy and just put it in a pan and top it with the chocolate. It’s like Mounds Bar Bark. SUPER yummy! Really just like a Mounds bar.
