I did it! Yes, no less than two days after dreaming up a reconstructed Bounty bar using my coconut macaroon recipe, it has materialised in my kitchen (shame on me!). The results are nothing to be sniffed at. Moist, fluffy, coconutty and chocolately, they are less sticky-sweet than the factory produced, plastic-wrapped original that inspired this creation, but delish nonetheless. I used 100 grams of good quality milk chocolate to coat the tops of my bars, but should you feel particularly naughty, I would guess that 200 grams is adequate to cover both top and sides.
The basic coconut macaroon mix that I used to form the bars was surprisingly easy to shape. I simply spooned it onto a baking sheet and formed each bar with spoon and fingertips. Makes 10 bars.
