These perfect little bites are a more delicious version of a Bounty bar. Homemade coconut bites, covered in dark chocolate, these are easy to make in large quantities and great for a grown-up Halloween, Christmas, or even just to stash away in a jar in the fridge so you can have a little chocolate treat whenever you like.

Chocolate Coconut Bites


1 cup Icing Sugar
1 cup Milk Powder
2 cups Desiccated Coconut
2 – 3 tbs Milk or Water for binding
100 – 150 g Dark Chocolate, chopped


Mix the icing sugar, milk powder and desiccated coconut together and add a little milk or water to the mix and bind together till it forms into a dough like consistency. Roll coconut balls in any size you desire and place them on a butter paper lined plate or baking tray. Refrigerate for a while.

Meanwhile, place chocolate in a bowl and melt on a low heat. Allow the melted chocolate to cool to room temperature. Dip the coconut balls in the melted chocolate and place back on a lined plate or baking tray. You could use your fingers for this or two forks if you don’t want your hands getting messy.

Place the chocolate bites in the fridge and allow the chocolate to cool and harden.

You could individually wrap these in pretty paper and tie with a little twine or ribbon. Or pop one directly into your mouth and enjoy!


Note: Melting Chocolate – You could microwave the chocolate at a low power setting in short bursts, stirring in between. You could also melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Place chocolate in a heat proof bowl and in another pot fill enough water so that when the chocolate bowl is placed over the pot, the boiling water will provide heat but not touch the bottom of the bowl. Do not allow any water to touch the chocolate.
