Homemade vegan mounds bar :D

Filed under: Uncategorized — crazyrunnerchick @ 9:19 pm

Ever since going vegan, I’ve got to say, i truly missed moundbars.  I’m such a big fan of coconut.  Ever since the third grade during a tropical-themed party in music class, I’ve loved coconut, and pairing it with chocolate is just like the greatest invention ever :).  So what does a little vegan do when she can’t have her delicious mounds bar?  Makes her own of course!

Doesn't quite look like a mounds bar, but it's close enough, right?

Homemade mounds bar (makes one so you can easily double the recipe)
–1 Tablespoon of melted coconut oil
–1 Tablespoon of cocoa powder
–Some sweetner like stevia or sugar (i used like ten drops of that liquid stevia stuff)
–Two tablespoons of shredded unsweetened (or sweetened!) coconut
Steps:
1. Make sure that you melt you coconut oil in the microwave or something before you mix it into the cocoa powder.  Once you mix in the coconut oil in the cocoa powder, add the sweetener.
2. In a tiny container, or a cupcake liner, put in half of the chocolate mixture into the container, and then, put in the coconut.  Cover the coconut with the rest of the chocolate mixture ^^
3. Freeze for a few hours until it gets hard, and then set it out to thaw.  You can keep it in the fridge or the counter.  Either way, it retains its shape.
I feel about a billion times better today!  But i have a lot of homework to catch up on.  And to top it all off, I’m speaking in my school’s chapel tomorrow along with a friend of mine!  I’m super nervous because I’ll be up in front of the entire junior high and high school!  I’m speaking on the water santitation and availability in third world countries, and we’re gonna raise money to help Living Water International, which is a Christian charity that specifically helps countries get clean, safe water. 
If you want, you can visit their website and donate to the cause.  It’s water.cc. 
Well, i need to head to bed before I’m staying up half the night again. 
Do you like mounds bars?  Me and my friends would always eat them when i was over at their house.  It was awesome 😀
