Ingredients

Instructions

  • Melt half of the chocolate. I did this in a pot over a low heat, but you can use a microwave, too. If you're using unsweetened sugar free chocolate, sweeten with liquid stevia to your liking (ca 12 drops per 100g).
  • Line a small casserole dish (mine was 10x7 inch) with baking paper. Pour in the chocolate and spread evenly.
  • Place in the fridge to harden.
  • For the filling, mix the desiccated coconut with the coconut cream, coconut oil and sweetener. This is best done in a food processor, but you could do it with a stick blender, too. You can buy canned coconut cream - or use full fat coconut milk and only use the creamy part, not the liquid part.
  • Spread the filling over the hardened chocolate base and press down. I ended up using only around half of the filling. I think next time I'll use more to make my bark less chocolatey and more coco-nutty.
  • Melt the second half of chocolate and pour over the top. Sprinkle some coconut on the top.
  • Refrigerate until set, then cut into 15-20 pieces.

Notes

I had around half of the coconut filling left over, but decided not to change the recipe because it would be tricky to blend only a tiny amount in a food processor. You could make little bliss balls and roll them in cocoa powder, for example. Or use more than half the filling and make your bark more coconutty - I think this is what I'll do next time.
I calculated the nutrition facts with half the coconut filling.
If you wanted, you could also make "proper" low carb Bounty Bars instead of bark - just form little bars and dip in chocolate instead! In this case, 100g/3.5 oz of chocolate would suffice
I used 100% unsweetened chocolate - I discovered a brand called Montezuma at my local Sainsbury's. Sweeten it to your liking with liquid stevia - I used this caramel-flavoured one. You could also use ready-made sugar free chocolate. In the US, Lily's is a good option.
