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!).
