I love recreating popular treats from scratch. I mean, why go to the store when you can take all the credit for making everyone’s favorite branded treat? That’s why I’m planning on making a series of different copycat candy bars over the next few weeks. Today, I’m making Raw Bounty Bars.
Bounty bars and I have quite the history. As a little girl, I loved Saturday mornings. My parents would take my sister and I to a grocery store to stock our fridge and pantry for the week. After browsing through every single aisle of the grocery store (just to make sure we didn’t forget anything), my sister and I got rewarded with the check out line. That’s where all the treats were displayed at our eye-level.
Since my sister and I both knew we could pick one treat, we always ran to see all the chocolate bars and candies available that day. I’m not sure why felt the urge to see all the treats time and time again, especially since we both had our favorites we always reached for. My sister would choose a Snickers Bar or a Twix Bar while I would go for a Bounty Bar. Being sure we both made our best pick, we handed the chocolate bars to my parents, excited to devour them as soon as we got out of the store.
To this day, I have a weakness for Bounty Bars. With an irresistible combination of coconut and chocolate it’s no wonder that bounty bars have been a classic confection for decades. However, I’m no longer a fan of processed treats and prefer to make them myself.
