Yummy Mounds Chocolate Candy Recipe And Mounds Brownies
The Mounds chocolate candy recipe has been in Dining on a Dime for years now but I just found a new variation on the recipe using brownies. I will give you our Mounds recipe from Dining on a Dime first.
- This recipe calls for a graham cracker base. You can use that or melt 1/2-1 bag of chocolate chips and pour into a well greased pan for a base instead. Chill the base. Then pour the filling on top and add more melted chips. Chill. To cut, use a metal scraper or dough cutter and press it straight down and cut in bars.
- You can also dip these by mixing the filling and then shaping into whatever shape you want. Place the shaped filling in freezer while melting the chocolate chips. Then, using a fork, dip into the melted chips. Place on a piece of waxed paper.
- You can make Almond Joy candy by using the tip above and then pressing an almond in the center before freezing. To make things easier, dribble a little chocolate on top of the almond right before dipping. It will help to hold the chocolate on better.
Mounds Chocolate Candy Recipe
22 graham crackers, crushed
1/2 cup butter, melted
3 Tbsp. sugar
12 oz. coconut
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk*
1 pkg. (12 oz.) chocolate chips
Mix graham crackers, butter, and sugar and spread evenly into a 9×13 pan. Bake 5 minutes and cool. In a saucepan, heat sweetened condensed milk and coconut for 10 minutes. Do this on low to medium heat so you don’t scorch it. Spread on crust. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Place in a preheated 325 degree oven until chips melt. Chill before serving.
*Don’t forget if you are in the middle of a recipe and don’t have sweetened condensed milk check out your copy of our Dining on a Dime cookbook because we include a sweetened condensed milk recipe in the cookbook for you.

1 can (16 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
