Tropical Chocolate Bars

Isla_Saona.jpgThis is a great recipe if you miss plain chocolate bounty bars. These are still produced but difficult to find in shops. Our version is low carb too! Sadly mine never seem to resemble the commercial product. I dread to say what they do look like, but if you recall the swimming pool scene from the film Caddyshack, you’ll get the idea…
