Pink Saturday

Good Morninggggggggg!

Welcome to another Pink Saturday. I will keep mine short and sweet today so you will have a little more time to visit all the other ladies, Just click on the little pink lady on the left and it will transport you over to visit our host Beverly and on to the fun.
As the holiday season grown near my candy making kicks into full swing, Usually make somewhere between 40 and 50 pounds of different candies for the holidays, Today I am sharing these delicious PINK coconut bon bons with you. So wonderful and simple to make so I will share the recipe you you. Have any questions just let me know.


2 CUPS DRY COCONUT, (usually purchased in a candy supply shop)
½ cup regular coconut
3/4 CUP HOT LIGHT KARO SYRUP. DO NOT BOIL


PUT YOUR COCONUT IN A BOWL. HEAT KARO JUST UNTIL HOT.( do not boil) MIX TOGETHER AND LET COOL. EITHER PUT IN THE REFRIGERATOR FOR A WHILE OR LET SET FOR A FEW HOURS. DAMPEN YOUR HANDS WITH WATER AND ROLL COCONUT INTO BALLS AND PUT ON CLEAN WAX PAPER. MELT ANY COLOR OF CHOCOLATE (PINK, GREEN, WHITE AND ETC) DIP COCONUT BALL IN CHOC. AND PUT ON WAX PAPER TO DRY.

YOU CAN ADD CHOPPED ALMONDS TO COCONUT MIXTURE AND DIP IN MILK CHOC. AND YOU WILL HAVE AN ALMOND JOY. DIP IN DARK CHOC. AND YOU WILL HAVE A MOUNDS BAR.

Enjoy your Candy Making and Enjoy your day.
Hugs,
Judy
