    Thumbs up Coconut candy

    3 cups granulated sugar
    1 cup milk
    3 cups shredded coconut

    In a saucepan, boil sugar and milk over medium heat until it becomes a thin
    syrup (232 to 240 degrees on your candy thermometer). Add coconut, stirring

    constantly to prevent burning. Color should be a nice golden brown. Spread
    over a flat plate and let cool. May be eaten warm or chilled. Makes 24 pieces

    Are these the ones that you can cover in chocolate and they taste like mounds candy bars ???
