"This recipe is very similar to the Mounds candy bar. With few ingredients, it is surprisingly easy to make."

sweetened condensed milk
semisweet chocolate chips
Everybody loved these! I tried the dipping method first, but it just wasn't working for me so I pressed the coconut mixture into a 9x11 baking dish and put the melted chocolate (milk chocolate instead of semi sweet) on top with an almond for each bar. Will definitely make this recipe again and again!
These bars taste very good, but the chocolate dipping part turned into a mess. The coconut mixture was not strong enough to withstand the dipping and kept breaking apart. If anyone has a suggestion or knows how to coat the entire bar in chocolate, please let me know. I think next time I will go with what was suggested and just pour chocolate over the mixture in the pan, chill, then cut. I would give this recipie 4 stars for taste alone, but the chocolate part really frustrated me.
The bars did not work for me so I rolled the coconut mixture into balls and dipped them into the chocolate. Everyone that sampled the candy asked for the recipe.
These are good but a little messy and time consuming. At first I had a hard time mixing the sugar and milk with a spoon, so I gave up and used my hand. I added more milk because 5 oz. didn't seem like it would have been enough to hold this together. I started out trying to dip the "bars" into the chocolate and found out that if they are not set...it makes a big mess. So I rolled them into balls and had better success that way. Make sure your chocolate isn't too thick...this will make it harder to coat. When all was said and done...these were a hit!! Thanks Debi.
Excellent recipe! So good.. I just loved it. Atip though.. when dipping the bars, I put them on a small (greased) spatula and then lowered that into my chocolate and used a fork to slide them off. Worked wonderfully!
This is incredible - these taste amazingly like a mounds bar. I scaled this down to 4 servings, and it made 15 good size pieces. Very easy to make. I did make one change: instead of pressing into a pan and cutting the chilled slab into bars, I rolled the coconut mixture into a log, and then cut into pieces. When dipping, I turned the bar over to coat completely, and this made a beautiful swirl over the top of each candy.
Note: I did use my hands to mix in the coconut. I amy have used a bit more confectioners' sugar than called for. The mixture was very stiff, and this may have made it easier to dip the pieces in chocolate.
Very quick and easy. I opted out of the dipping and just put the chocolate on top of the coconut mixture. Tastes just like the candy bar. Very rich and delicious.
I first tried this when the chocolate was still wet, and it didn't taste very good, but when it hardened, it was just delicious!!! I definately would reccomend this to make!!!
