Grated Coconut Candy (Tablet Kokoye Graje)

Peggy J Shabazz


This is another version of the Coconut Candy. Only difference with this version is that the candy will have a nice ivory color instead of the dark brown color since granulated sugar is used instead of brown sugar. You'll find this version of the coconut candy to be as delicious. Will have pics up soon! Enjoy!

How to Make Grated Coconut Candy (Tablet Kokoye Graje)


  1. Lightly grease a large baking sheet. Set aside
  2. Mix sugar and evaporated milk in heavy 3-quart saucepan. Mix in condensed milk, salt, cinnamon, and grated coconut. Bring to a boil over high heat.
  3. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 40 minutes, stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan often during the first 25 minutes, then constantly during the last 5 minutes to prevent scorching. The mixture should be very thick, and should turn a beautiful ivory color. Do not let caramelize.
  4. Remove from heat. Drop by tablespoons on prepared baking sheet. Cool at room temperature. Will keep one week in an airtight container.

    Yields about 30 (Tablet Graje)
