How I Make My Coconut Candy

This is how I make my home  made coconut candy







Tools: sauce pan, grater, spoon, bowl

 Steps: First of all rise your coconut well, then you cut it into large pieces and grate them, then keep it aside. Then put your sugar in a bowl and add a cup of water you can also add your coconut water to it if flavor is available you can add it to the mixture. 

Then pour the syrup(sugar+water+flavor) into a sauce pan and set it on your ignited gas, make sure the heat is moderate not too high or too low then slow it to boil for about 10-15 min, when you notice it has started becoming thick add your grated coconut and start to stir it for 8 minutes until it starts to caramelize(turning brown). At this stage reduce the heat to avoid burning. When it has turned totally to caramel turn off the heat and use a spoon to scoop it out and form any shape of your choice. 

Slow it to cool for 3hours or put it in a freezer until it turns hard, then serve it

 how do you make your coconut candy, let's discuss.

  • For me,it depends on the shape is want... sometimes I just chop the coconut into small small cubes...

    Sometimes I grate them... especially for cakes..and it is really advisable to use fresh coconut because it is really juicy and the coconut original flavor it still in it..

    After that I add my already mixed.syrup spiced up with any flavor I want there into the non stick pan ..add my coconut cubes or grates and still till it turns caramel in brown...

  • Here is how I made mine..pour the coconut juice into the pot. Add the icing sugar (powdered sugar). Add the tiny coconut pieces and stir. Add water to the same level as the coconut pieces. Cover the pot and set to boil at high heat. Once the contents start boiling, stir continuously till all the water is just about evaporated.

  • Ingredients for coconut candy recipe Coconut or coconut flakes – 200 g; Sugar – 200 g; pure cold water (optionally) – 300 ml. How to make a coconut candy? First of all, you need to decide whether you would like your coconut balls to be crunchy you prefer them to be soft and tender. If you choose the first variant, then don’t add water, if the second one – mix sugar with water.  The number of ingredients depends on how many coconut candies you plan to make. This recipe will provide you with an average proportion of ingredients. If you want a few more or less balls, adjust appropriately. - Grind coconut on a grater or you may buy already-made coconut flakes; - Take a saucepan. Using medium heat, boil the mixture of sugar and water for for 12 minutes. If you don’t want to add water, just put in only sugar and heat till it becomes dissolved; - Add coconut flakes, stir together for about 8 minutes or until sugar becomes golden brown; - Avoid sugar and coconut on the stove! Lower the heat to a minimum; - Leave the mixture in a saucepan for another 5 minutes; - Put it on a plate and let this mixture become cool; - When it has become rather firm, use your hands to form small coconut ball. Repeat the procedure until you have as many balls as you can make from the mix. - Leave for 3 hours, then enjoy! By the way, you can make these candies in advance and store in a freezer, as the next day they will be even more delicious. IMPORTANT! You need to bear in mind that the usual recipe of coconut candy may not suit diabetics, as coconut balls have a very high amount of sugar. Those who suffer from diabetes should replace sugar with honey.

  •  After breaking the coconut and prying out the flesh(that’s if you’re using whole coconut).
     I grate the coconut flesh and set aside, then combine the water and sugar in a pot and boil on medium heat. Without stirring.

    As the mixture begins to look thicker and the color changes to a very light brown. I reduce the heat to low, then add the coconut and mix thoroughly with a spatula, until it is well incorporated.

    I keep on stirring until the mixture is a ”browner” color  and feels ”kind-of” grainy on your spatula. Then Put off the heat. I later ransfer  the coconut candy into a wide tray/plate, spread it out and leave to cool a bit. 
       Then mold into any shape of choice or simply leave it to cool completely and harden. Then cut into square or rectangles.
    It can also be placed in the freezer or refrigerator to harden faster.

  • Naturally I don't like coconut Candy, I find it too sugary in nature. The fact is that I can eat coconut in its original state, but when it's mixed up to form another substance, I then dislike that product.
