About this recipe: This coconut candy is one of my favorites. It's easy to make and looks very pretty. It makes a great gift, because everybody loves homemade sweets.
My mom loved them!! She said they were better than any store-bought version she has tried. I'm considering adding a little rum or rum flavoring next time. What an awesome cocktail complement, yummy! - 16 Dec 2015
I made this recipe exactly as it was written, the only thing I added was a little food coloring which doesn't change the taste only the looks. I split them up into three different colors. Pink, green and yellow. I originally learned this recipe for my Vietnamese friend. Adding the colors makes it look really pretty. - 22 Mar 2017
Living in Hawaii, I have fresh coconut from my yard daily. I have found these candied ribbons at specialty stores and they are delicious, hard to find and very expensive. I tried my hand at this recipe and followed it exactly and the results are amazing! The recipe is very simple and although I may experiment with it later, for now, it’s perfect…why mess with a good thing?! I’ve shared these as gifts in glass jars with cute tags and my friends and family love them. Thank you Toi! - 18 Jun 2015
