Got this recipe from my aunt and just tried it to put on my candy tray i give my neighbors for Christmas. This is so rich buttery coconut flavor i hated to give it away. Its fast and easy to make with few ingredients you have in your kitchen.
In a heavy sauce pan, slowly bring to a low boil the sugar, milk, and butter. stirring often boil on med to low (you do not want a rapid boil) a slow boil for 9 1/2 to 10 minutes (no MORE), take off heat and add vanilla and coconut and beat with a mixer till creamy then pour into a 8x8 butter dish and let cool completely cut and serve..enjoy!!
