Nestle Bounty's are gluten free but our take on them is also dairy free and don't use many ingredients, they are so tasty pretty low in calories too. This recipe also makes them vegan naturally but we have added a honey instead of maple syrup alternative if you don't want vegan. They are so good you'll want to eat them all!

Method

1. Place all the filling ingredients in a pan, stir until the coconut oil has melted then bring to the boil and then remove from heat.

2. Line a square cake tin with cling film, press the coconut filling tightly into the tin then allow to cool slightly, once cooled, place in the freezer for around 2 hours until hardened.

3. To make the coating, melt the coconut oil, cocoa powder and honey together over a low heat then allow to cool until slightly thickened but not set (we found around 15 minutes in the fridge was ideal).

4. Remove the coconut filling from freezer and chop into 32 pieces, roll each in the chocolate and place on greaseproof paper to set (it should mostly set almost immediately with the coldness of the coconut),place in fridge to set fully.
