What you do: 

1. Lightly grease a cookie sheet. In a saucepan, bring the coconut and water to a boil. Add the brown sugar and stir well.
2. Cook on low for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the coconut extract. Turn the flame off and stir occasionally until mix begins to harden and becomes sticky.

This recipe works great. You just have to follow the steps.


This recipe does not work! There must be a particular ingredient missing from this recipe that makes it harden correctly. What a waste of my time trying to make this tonight and waste of ingredients. :-(
