  1. Blend the condensed milk and the vanilla together in a bowl. Add the powdered sugar a little at a time, blending each time until smooth. Stir in the coconut. You should have a firm mixture. Pat the mixture into a greased 9 x 13 inch pan and chill until firm.
  2. Place the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and heat on high 1 minute at a time, stirring after each minute, until melted. Remove the pan from the refrigerator and cut the coconut mixture into 1 x 2 inch bars.
  3. Set each bar on a fork and dip into the chocolate, completely coating the bar. Let excess drip off, then set on waxed paper. Repeat for each bar. Bars will take several hours to air-dry; if you are in a hurry you can refrigerate the bars for about 30 minutes. Enjoy!

Very quick and easy. I opted out of the dipping and just put the chocolate on top of the coconut mixture. Tastes just like the candy bar. Very rich and delicious.

This is incredible - these taste amazingly like a mounds bar. I scaled this down to 4 servings, and it made 15 good size pieces. Very easy to make. I did make one change: instead of pressing int...

These were fabulous! one of our children is allergic to peanuts and treenuts and cannot even come into contact with them, so our home is completely nut free (along with other food items he's a...

I first tried this when the chocolate was still wet, and it didn't taste very good, but when it hardened, it was just delicious!!! I definately would reccomend this to make!!!

These are great! I found it was much easier to knead the coconut mixture with my hands than to try blending it with a spoon. I also didn't bother cutting them into bars and instead pressed the...
