These protein ‘bounty bar’ chocolates were the beginning of my love affair with protein confectionery. A mouthful of rich chocolate and creamy coconut is truly satisfying for even the biggest chocoholic! When nothing else but the hard stuff will do – try these before reaching for a family size bar of dairy milk (you will thank me!)
Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 15 mins
100g high quality chocolate (I use 90% cocoa)
1/2 scoop milk chocolate Muscle Mousse (or this can be subbed for any casein protein powder)
2 dessert spoons unsweetened desiccated coconut
splash of coconut milk (or water is fine)
you will also need a silicone chocolate mould
1Place the silicone mould in the freezer.
2Mix the Muscle Mousse (or casein) with the coconut and enough coconut milk (or water) to make a very thick paste.
3Melt the chocolate over a pan of hot water. Spoon a small amount into the chilled silicone mould and spread the chocolate round the sides by tipping the mould so the chocolate coats the inside.
4Place this in the freezer for a few minutes to set.
5Remove from the freezer and press a small amount of the filling into each mould. Leave a small gap at the top.
6Fill the gap with a little more melted chocolate and return to the freezer or fridge. Allow your chocolates to fully chill before attempting to press them out of the mould.
7I decorated mine with white chocolate stars but pretty them up how you will!
