A coconut lovers delight!

As I was making my Fast and Easy Chocolate Fudge I thought about how good it might be if I add toasted coconut. One thought led to another and I ended up making a white fudge that I added toasted coconut to. If you love coconut, I think you will love this fudge. It's a little softer than my chocolate fudge but still wonderful!

Hope you enjoy!
