Homemade Healthier Mounds Bars

Who doesn’t love a Mounds bar?  Chocolate on the outside, coconut on the inside.  Yum yum!  Well, I am betting the store bought Mounds Bars have a lot of ingredients I try to avoid.  My homemade, healthier, Mounds bar recipe only calls for 6 ingredients and is very easy to make.  If you like this recipe, you may also enjoy my Copycat Peanut Butter Eggs or my Almond Joy Energy Bites.

I am sure that would probably be okay as well.
