Mounds Bites

This is a fun candy to make with the family if you can keep them from eating the candies as they go.

  • 1/4 pound butter
  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 cups flaked coconut
  • 1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½  cups semi-sweet  or bitter-sweet chocolate chips


In bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Add coconut, milk, and vanilla; stir until blended. Chill for 1 hour or until firm.

Use scoop to make 1” balls. Insert a toothpick in each ball. Place balls on baking sheet; freeze.

Use a double boiler to melt chocolate.

Then using toothpicks as handles dip frozen balls into melted chocolate. I also use a spoon to assist me in covering the balls then I place  them onto a cookie sheet with the tooth picks in the upright position.

Chill until firm (about 1 hour) in the refrigerator.

Remove picks from balls and then dip fork into melted chocolate then drizzle chocolate on top of the candy to cover the hole where you removed the toothpick.

Makes about 48 candies

I was born and raised in New York. Later in life I moved to Central Florida. I am of Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Puerto Rican and Cuban decent. I have been working in the restaurant business for most of my life and have owned five along the way. Recently I became aware of the fact that as my elders passed away their recipes passed with them. I call these recipes "Heirloom Recipes" I am dedicating this site to saving recipes from extinction. Not only recipes from my family but from yours. Do you have a unique recipe that needs saving? Send it to me along with a name and picture of your relative and I will review it and possibly post it as an Heirloom Recipe.
