Homemade Dairyfree ‘Bounty’ Balls

This is an easy recipe for Homemade DairyFree ‘Bounty’ Balls. I love Bounty chocolate and when I saw the recipe online of how to make it at home, I had to try it.

Of course, I made changes to the recipe as I wanted my kids to try it too so I made it into dairy free for my kids. Also, the Bounty chocolate bar is a rectangular shape but I made it into balls just for fun. You can shape them anyway you like.

To see how I made this recipe allergy friendly read on…

Dairy Free Homemade Bounty Balls

  • Use allergy friendly chocolate or chocolate chips of choice
  • Replace the regular condensed milk with coconut condensed milk

The coconut condensed milk may not be available in some places so use regular coconut milk but adjust the quantity used to just enough to shape the ball.

Adding the sugar to the bounty balls

I have only used the condensed milk and no sugar as the milk already is sweetened and is just the right amount of sweet that I like. You can add confectioner’s sugar if you like, to your taste.

Also if you are using regular coconut milk, you might want to use the sweetened version.

What type of coconut to use?

I have experimented with both desiccated and shredded coconut in the recipe, desiccated coconut works the best.

Storing the Homemade DairyFree Bounty Balls

Keep the bounty balls in the refrigerator for up to a week or cover them in freezer save container and freeze them for longer period. They can keep up to three months when frozen. Just leave them to thaw at room temperature for 10 minutes when you eat them.
