Coconut Candy Balls
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: African
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Cups Coconut Flakes (I used Sweetened)
  1. Using a heavy-bottom sauce pan, melt the sugar on medium high heat until it's light brown - being careful not to burn it.
  2. Stir in coconut flakes until they are all cover in the melted sugar.
  3. Let it cool for a few minutes then scoop out and roll into a ball, it will be sticky so dip your hands in cold water to help make it easier. Another option is to scoop it into parchment paper and roll it into a ball either option works.
  4. Serve warm for a chewy coconut candy or cold for a hard candy.
