<p>I always loved coconut candy bars, especially Bounty. Actually I like a lot of desserts, biscuits and candy bars that contain at least a bit of coconut. It bring a special, delicate aroma to a pastry. Jernej put a lot of effort into creating this lovely chocolate, lime and coconut candy bar and he succeeded wonderfully. A delicate coconut, sour lime and sweet chocolate create a beautiful balance, synergy of flavors that take us on an exotic journey. </p>
Combine desiccated coconut, warm milk (or warm coconut water), 90g / 3 oz. icing sugar and one tablespoon of coconut liquor (optional) in a bowl. Stir with a wooden spoon and set aside until needed. The desiccated coconut will become a bit moist.
Whisk the egg yolks and 50g / 1.7 oz. icing sugar in a large bowl. Place lime zest and one tablespoon of coconut liquor to a saucepan and bring to a boil. Pour over the whisked egg yolks, stirring constantly with a hand whisk. Pour the mixture into a saucepan, set it over a medium high heat for about 2 - 3 minutes or until the cream gets thick. Remove from the heat and cool the cream slightly. While the lime cream is still a bit warm, slowly start adding and stirring in the coconut oil and lime zest.
Add the lime cream into a desiccated coconut mixture and stir well. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight. Shape the lime coconut candy bars into small candy bars, then use a dipping fork to coat in the tempered dark chocolate. Sprinkle with small desiccated coconuts. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place for up to 4 days.
