BONBON COCO

~ Food Fare Recipes

2 1/2 c. grated coconut
1 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. water
pinch salt

Combine coconut, sugar, and salt in a heavy-bottomed pot. Add the water and slowly bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Continue to cook until coconut mixture is thick, all liquid has evaporated, the coconut has begun to brown, and the mixture is stiff and sticky, about twenty minutes. Remove from heat and use spoons to form hot mixture into balls, then place on waxed paper. Flatten by placing a second piece of wax paper over the candies and pressing down. Cool completely before removing from waxed paper. The balls should be firm, but not crunchy.

Notes: Devon made these for a presentation about Madagascar that our kids did for our homeschool group. We opt not to roll the mixture into balls and just plop spoonfuls onto waxed paper without flattening them. It tastes the same and doesn't take as much time.
