Homemade Mounds Bars (+ Your Favorite Recipes of 2013!)

Okay, seriously, where did the year go?  This year was eventful, busy, and full of food love!  Today, I decided to leave you with one last recipe to finalize 2013 in style!  Last week I shared my Mom’s Homemade Chocolate Fudge.  It was hard to choose which recipe to share from the many cookie recipes my Mom made this year.  Then I went home to Michigan for an unexpected trip, and the recipes were decided.  While my Niece, Dad, and I were out playing in the snow,  my Mom stayed in and made some fudge, and her version of a candy bar favorite.

Homemade Mounds BarsMy Mom couldn’t remember where she got the delicious recipe.  It is one of those recipes that has been around for a very long time.  This is actually one of my Sister’s favorite holiday recipes.  If you love coconut, and you love Mounds Bars candy bar….well then you may want to double this recipe!

For double boiler - have stove top on medium heat, for bottom pan add small amount of water, place second pan over bottom pan to create double boiler, continually stir chocolate to prevent burning while melting the chocolate, pour melted chocolate over cooled coconut mixture.

Let chocolate set, then enjoy!


I hope you all had a lovely 2013.  Here are your top 12 favorite recipes.  The first two recipes were the most popular recipes shared this year.  What I have learned from your top favorites?  It is good to share old favorites with a twist, and one dish meals are still loved by many.  So for next year, I plan to share some more old favorites…..AND some casserole dishes will need to go in the Que!

    I have never been sledding. Just no snow in my part of the world. I would love to have that experience - it looks thrilling and definitely something story-books are made of. I had a hummingbird cake in my Top 5 this year too. I think my favourite though is that hash brown breakfast bake. Happy New Year to you and your family xx
    • Definitely add sledding to your bucket list, it is beyond fun! Thank you so much, Hugs, Terra
  • I remember all of this deliciousness from 2013!!! Looking forward to see what 2014 brings. Thanks for a great year of recipes Terra!

    • Thank you so much Anne for stopping by! The egg bake is pretty delicious, we made some again last weekend:-) Hugs, Terra
  • Hi Terra! This year really went by super fast, I can't believe we are in 2014. I wish you guys a happy new year from Goa and keep on amazing us with your food creations. btw in the recipe you wrote coconut, I suppose you mean dessicated/dried coconut and not fresh right?
    • Hi Helene, It is dried coconut that is found in a bag in stores here. BUT I bet you could use fresh grated coconut too? :-) oxox, Terra
