Coconut Chocolate Mounds Candy

Chocolate Mounds Candy Pin Word

This sweet and delectable Chocolate Mounds Candy recipe is based on the Mounds Bar.  It is not exactly a copy-cat recipe but it is surely inspired by The Almond Joy and the Mounds Bar.  So simple and you do not have to cook to any specified temperature.  We are loving them and I don’t think they will make it to the freezer.

Chocolate Coconut Mounds Candy

Prep Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 36 Candy Balls

Serving Size: Oh, 1 or 2


1/2 cup vegan butter, melted

2 cups Organic Powdered Sugar

3 cups unsweetened shredded coconut

16 ounce package Chocolate Chips


Place a piece wax paper in a cookie sheet (baking sheet). Set aside.

Melt the vegan butter in the microwave. It only takes seconds.

Mix the melted butter, powdered sugar and shredded coconut in a Large Mixing Bowl.

Roll into about 36 balls.

Place back into the large bowl and refrigerate for about an hour. Until firm for rolling in chocolate.

Melt the chocolate. You can use a microwave or over a hot water bath.

Roll each ball in the chocolate, quickly, and lift with two forks. Place on the waxed paper that is on the cookie sheet.

Fill up the pan. You may need more than one. Try not to let them touch.

Place in the refrigerator when all done so that the chocolate can harden.

Keep them in a container in the refrigerator and place out to serve to company.

  1. I love the mounds recipe and look forward to making them this Christmas. Can I make these a little ahead and freeze them? Thanks again.

      • Yes, that’s right Dianne. Becasue of the organic ingredients that is safe. If you don’t use organic then the preservatives would keep them even longer. Not sure how long on that though.

      • Thank you. Will the chocolate lose its gloss in the fridge, too, as it will in the freezer?

      • OK. Thanks for your prompt replies to my questions! I plan to make these candies soon.

  2. If you don’t want to use the butter you can use leftover mashed potatoes. Real good. I also add a little bit of almond extract.
