As a kid one of my favorite things to snack on was coconut candy. It is so delicious and keeps you wanting more. It reminds me of my primary school days. Oh the excitement when the lunch time bell rang and we got to snack on the best thing ever!
I never knew how much effort was put into making coconut candy. Until I tried it myself. Phew! It’s hard work, but it’s very fun and worth every bit of sweat.
This recipe is the effort of three generations of my family. My grandma carved and grated the coconuts, my mama caramelized it in a cast iron pot, I did most of the tasting (haha), portioning and captured the pictures, whilst the overall idea was from by my younger sister.
If you ever want to make some coconut candy with friends, family or just your kids (they’d love it!), here’s the recipe:
It’s a delicious snack that I’m sure you’ll enjoy making and sharing with loved ones.
