    AlAlmost Bounty Bars

    These have proved to be very popular with family and friends

    Ingredients:
    100ml Zsweet or sweetener of your choice (taste the mixture)
    50 g coconut oil
    100ml double cream
    100ml coconut milk (preferably organic coconut milk from Blue Dragon because of the low carbohydrate value)
    200 g desiccated coconut
    100 g of chocolate with high cocoa content (> 70%) Lidl's is good for this


    Carefully, in a saucepan, melt coconut and sweetener..
    Add the coconut milk, cream, grated coconut and let it simmer.
    Stir well and leave in the fridge for about an hour.
    Shape the mixture into 12-14 square-like pieces.
    Put the pieces in the freezer and leave for one hour.
    Carefully melt the chocolate in the microwave.
    Dip the coconut bars in the melted chocolate.
    Place in the freezer to cool, then store in the fridge.
