I love coconut!
Especially when I get it by the pail full!
Tropical Traditions 100% natural Shredded Coconut is made from organic dried coconuts in the Philippines that are grown with no fertilizers or pesticides.
This premium dried coconut contains no additives or preservatives, and is not sweetened.
Unlike most dried coconut on the market, Tropical Traditions dried coconut products are not treated with sulfites to keep them white.
The shredded coconut is Certified Organic and great for snacking or baking (I even like to throw some in my smoothies-when I had a blender-must get new blender).
There are no added sweeteners, no preservatives or sulfite whiteners in this coconut.
It’s 100% natural premium coconut from the Philippines and comes in a re-sealable pail. (though I will admit it’s a bit of a task to get open unless you have cutters and pliers to pull on the tab – but well worth it!)
I made coconut macaroons before, but today I made a wanna be Mounds bar…just not in candy bar form…
Basically the yummmy coconut filling with chocolate on top.
It still tasted like a Mounds bar so that’s all that mattered!
Here’s the recipe if you want to buy some shredded coconut and give it a go (or if you’re the lucky winner you will have something you can make right away!)
Mounds Bar Recipe
14 oz of shredded coconut
7 oz of sweetened condensed milk
1/4 c. butter (softened)
1/2 lb confectioners (powered) sugar
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips or chocolate to melt down to cover
2 teaspoons butter
In large bowl, mix the coconut, sweetened condensed milk, softened butter and confectioners sugar together til it sticks together.
Spread in a 9×13 pan lined with parchment paper (or you can use 8×8, 10×10 to make them thicker)
Refrigerate for about 2 hours to set.
Melt the chocolate chips and butter either in double boiler or in microwave, stirring occasionally to make sure it doesnt burn.
Spread over coconut mix
Take out a few minutes before cutting
Cut and enjoy
