I’m a huge fan of coconut. You will probably ask at this point “Are you sure it’s just coconut ?”
Okay…fine, I’m a huge fan of Food in general and of course coconut is one of the food items I love to cook with.
This recipe I got from 1000 classic recipe book is so simple. I thought it was kinda “trial and error” thing when I first made it. But it turned out well. I love to cook, but I’m not a “baker”. This recipe is too simple that even I manage to make them ;b

COCONUT CANDIES (8-10 pieces)

6 Tbsp of butter
3 cups of grated coconut
3/4 cup condensed milk
Few drops of pink food coloring (optional)


1. Melt butter on a non-stick pan on low heat. Be careful not to burn the butter

2. Add in the grated coconut and mix well

3. Add in the condensed milk and continue to stir for about 8-10 minutes

4. Now, you can divide the coconut mixture into two, one with coloring, the other one without. If you choose not too make two colors, you can skip this step. I made one with pink color, just so for photography purpose 😉 well, I ate them too of course. No food go to waste in this house

5. Drop one or two drops of the pink color and mix well. Remove and set aside

6. When they are cool enough to touch, wet both hands with water (to prevent sticking) and shape them into small squares, you can shape them as big or as small as you want. They are rather “soft” to work with at first, but no worries, they will harden later in the fridge

7. Let them set in the fridge and they will settle and harden
