Coconut Fudge

Yield about 3 dozen

Ingredients

  • 3 cups sugar
  • 2 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate, grated
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups flaked coconut, chopped

How to Make It

  1. Combine sugar, grated chocolate, milk, and butter in a large Dutch oven; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves. Cover and continue to cook over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes to wash down sugar crystals from sides of pan. Uncover and cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture reaches soft ball stage (234°).

  2. Remove from heat; let stand 15 minutes or until mixture cools to lukewarm (110°). Do not stir. Add vanilla and coconut; beat mixture with a wooden spoon until mixture thickens and begins to lose its gloss.

  3. Working rapidly, spread mixture into a buttered 9-inch square baking pan. Mark top of warm candy into 1 1/2-inch squares, using a sharp knife. Cool completely before cutting into squares. Store in an airtight container.
