If you have an electronic thermometer, check that the mixture reaches 85°C (185°F) for the agar-agar to react.

8 Like Bounty : Photo of step #8To really surprise your guests, be sure to cover the fondant completely with the chocolate sauce, so that no white is visible and the coconut is discovered with the first spoonful.

Remarks

If you'd like the texture to be closer to the real Bounty, you can add a tablespoon or two of dessicated coconut to the mixture.
