Default Cocada Branca

Cocada Branca

submitted by

White Coconut Flake Candy

This candy is from Brazil.

This is a recipe for white coconut candy. It is called "white" because
there is also black cocada (cocada
preta). The black cocada is made with brown sugar and has a dark brown
4 cups granulated sugar
1 cup water
2 coconuts
4 cloves (optional)
1 cinnamon stick (optional)

Grate the coconuts with a hand grater (Do not use blender, food processor.
Coconut flakes already grated will not taste the same as freshly grated
coconuts). In a large saucepan, combine the water, sugar, cloves and
cinnamon. Boil for about 20 minutes or until you get a thick syrup. Test
by dropping a full teaspoon of syrup in a glass with water. The syrup
should become a soft candy. (You can remove the clove and cinnamon from
the syrup at this point). Remove the saucepan from the heat and mix in
the grated coconut with a wooden spoon. Return the saucepan to heat and
cook additional 5 minutes. Perform the water glass test again to make sure
it has boiled long enough. Use a large spoon to drop amounts of melted
cocada onto a buttered baking sheet.

Let cocadas cool, then serve.
