    Coconut Toffee


    1 cup thick coconut milk

    1 cup milk

    2 cup sugar

    1 pinch salt

    1 teaspoon fresh butter

    1 a few drops of vanilla essence

    Directions: How to Cook Coconut Toffee

    Mix both the milks together. Keep it on fire in a thick-bottomed vessel and bring to a boil. Add sugar and salt and cook on a slow fire stirring continuously. When the mixture thickens, test it by dropping a little in cold water. If it forms a soft ball, remove the vessel from fire, add butter and vanilla essence and again cook on a slow fire till it thickens. Pour it at once on a greased plate and cut into square pieces.

    Makes 25 pieces.

    Note: If prefered, any colour could be added.

    try Macaroons. I don't have the measurements for the recipe, but you can still try it.

    Mix dessicated coconut with condensed milk so that it becomes a wet paste. transfer spoonfuls of the mixture onto small paper-macaroon cups. sprinkle with cinnamon is desired. then bake for twenty minutes or less in an oven toaster or until the tops are firm but chewy. :)
