Ingredients

  • 200 g desiccated coconut
  • 200 g condensed milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 300 g milk chocolate
Mix the Coconut Filling

Step 1

Mix The Coconut Filling

Stir together the desiccated coconut with the condensed milk and the drop of vanilla extract. Pour into the base of a square silicon baking mould or clingfilm lined baking tin. Chill for several hours in the fridge, or an hour in the freezer usually works.

Shape the Filling

Step 2

Shape The Filling

Cut small bars out of the set coconut block that are about 3cm across and 6-7cm long. Use your finger and thumb to round off the corners to imitate the real chocolate bars. Line them up on a wire rack over a plastic tray or clean work surface.

Coat

Step 3

Coat

Melt the milk chocolate until it's completely smooth. Pour it over the lined up bars in a continuous stream so that ample chocolate covers each coconut bar and it dribbles down the sides. Level it with a skewer so that it's perfectly clean.

Mark and Chill

Step 4

Mark And Chill

Use the same skewer (or the back of a knife) to create 3 parallel lines on each bar, moving swiftly between them to create the iconic markings on top of the bars.
