Raw Mounds Bars

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!).

    my o my o my o – they are so good! I made a double batch and gave them to several friends – I can’t wait to try a few more and make up my own. I was thinking about adding some greens next time. This is such a beautifully creative idea – I love it!
