This image brings me many memories, before Venezuela fell into the crisis we are going through, I could enjoy this and other sweets, unfortunately many products have disappeared, either because the companies have closed or because they have left the country and if export some products are so expensive that at least I can not acquire them.
The good news is that these rich coconut bars covered with chocolate can be prepared at home, this recipe I love because it has the two ingredients I like best together, chocolate and coconut.
- 80 gr of sugar
- 50 grams of butter
- 200 gr of cream or milk cream
- 200 gr of grated coconut
- a little bit of vanilla
- 200 gr of chopped milk chocolate
We place in a saucepan the sugar, the butter and the cream or milk cream, we take to the soft heat, until it is the melted butter, it does not have to boil, as soon as it is all unified, it is already ready. remove from the fire, and add the 200 grams of grated coconut and a few drops of vanilla essence, mix and we have a paste, put it in a mold with plastic wrap, and leave it very smooth, the thickness you choose, mine It was about 3 cm, I like it with a lot of coconut, so choose your if you want it wider or finer, take it to cool a couple of hours at least, in the refrigerator, when removed from the refrigerator is like a block and chop into portions, if you want to smooth the edges with your fingers, we separate them, and we take them back to the refrigerator, a few hours, I left it all night, but if you're in a hurry, put it in the freezer or freezer a couple of hours, melt the chocolate in a bain-marie or in the microwave, we add once it is melted, 1 tbsp corn oil or sunflower, and with this we bathe the bars, the ideal would be to do it on a grid, if you put a paper plastic below.
