HOW TO MAKE COCONUT CANDY


HOW TO MAKE COCONUT CANDY

Hi. I will be sharing the recipe for coconut candy in this post but allow me to warn you, this recipe requires much sugar. I would have skipped the sugar and simply substitute with honey but I need the sugar to make the coconut candy stick together. However, I reduced the quantity of sugar I should have used and I added a bit of honey. Because I love the taste of dates and coconut combined, I grated in some dates. The recipe with the dates is the same but yummier! 

PREP TIME: 15 minutes

INGREDIENTS

1 medium sized coconut

3-4 tablespoons of sugar

HOW TO

Grate the coconut using the bigger grater hole.

Add ¾ cup of water to a pot, add the sugar and heat. *Do not stir the sugar. Heat the syrup (water + sugar) until the sugar begins to caramelize (i.e when it starts to turn light brown).

When this happens, pour in the grated coconut and stir. Continue stirring to prevent it from getting burnt. Remove from heat when the coconut becomes brown and allow it to cool.

Form into desired shape when it is cool and enjoy.
Coconut candy compliments garri well, you could also serve coconut candy with cold drinks
