Easy Homemade Bounty Cups | Easy Gifting Ideas

Christmas is nearing and its time to send out gifts to your loved ones. What to send is one question that keeps popping up everytime I think about the gifting part. Though there are a whole lot of bookmarked recipes out there (on that note, its been a long time since I even visited my bookmarked folder), I keep on searching for new recipes, bookmarking them on-the-go. Rather than new I would say easy. Off late, I am becoming too lazy busy to even step into the kitchen. Thanks to the weather. Though it is scorching between 10 to 5, once the sun goes down, the weather is perfect to crawl into the coziness of my sofa (ofcourse with the kid) with a cup of steaming coffee and after that its play, play and more play with the kid. So when I planned to send some Christmas gifts to my in-laws, I was literally scratching my head in loss of recipes.

I first thought of making chocolate fudge and as I went through the recipes, was put off by all that heating, cooling and mixing. As I sat there, I remembered the dessicated coconut tat has been lying around for quite sometime and thought of making something with that. Browsed for a few recipes and was hooked to the homemade bounty bars out there. Now I am not a patient lady girl like them and so messing up my hands with all that dipping into chocolate was not even accounted for. Ok there is this fork, but believe me I am so clumsy to use the fork. I don't even eat my noodles with fork and don't ask me with what I do. That was when I remembered my cup shaped chocolate mould that I purchased long back (after lots of discussions, read heated, with the huss. yeah and I forget to mention tat there are already some 5 unused chocolate moulds and two of them silicon moulds). So thought of putting them into use and these beauties were wat I got. I got to send only a few to my in-laws as half was finished by amma. BTW she is a die-hard fan of anything coconut and Bounty tops the list :).
These are easy-to-make gifts and anyone lazy like me out there its just your recipe for the season.

~*What U Need*~
Dessicated coconut - 2 cups
Condensed milk - 1/2 can
Coconut oil - 1 tbsp(optinal)
Dark chocolate - 200 gm

How I made it:
In a mixing bowl add coconut, condensed milk and coconut oil and mix till it forms a sticky dough. Grease your hands and make small balls out of it (depends on the chocolate mould that you will be using). Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Take your chocolate mould (I used cup shaped mould). Drop a spoonful of melted chocolate, place a coconut ball in the middle. Spoon chocolate and fill the mould. Refrigerate till set, 2 or 3 hours.

Homemade bounty ready!!! Makes a perfect gift for the season. You can either wrap it in colored foil or place them in a gift box.

** My Notes:
** Adding coconut oil is purely optional but that gives an intense coconut-y flavor to the filling
** You can use milk chocolate for the outer covering too but dark chocolate works the best

So thats it Folks...
With Love,

Signs off!!!
