Meat of one fresh medium coconut, grated

1 cup water

1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar


  1. Combine the water and sugar in a heavy bottomed saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, until it becomes like a hard ball or reaches 275 degrees F. Add the coconut and continue cooking until no steam rises from the pot and all the liquid has evaporated. Using a tablespoon, drop the coconut smooches onto a greased cookie sheet and let cool.
