Another delicious recipe from our Family-FavoriteRecipes Collection.

Recipe: Coconutty CaramelCandies

25 caramel candies, unwrapped3/4 cup, plus 3 tablespoons sweetenedflaked coconut – divided use1/2 cup white chocolate chips1/2 cup dry roasted peanuts

  • Line an 8×4-inch loaf pan with foil* andgrease well with butter.
  • In a 4 cup-glass measure, or microwave-safemixing bowl, combine the unwrapped caramels, 3/4 cup coconut,chocolate chips and peanuts. Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute.Stir. Microwave an addition 30 to 60 seconds, until caramelsare softened. (Careful, don’t overdo it, the caramels shouldonly “soften” so they will combine with the other ingredients,yet still be distinguishable from the white chocolate.)
  • Press candy mixture evenly into preparedpan (use a piece of plastic wrap to make pressing the mixtureeasier).
  • Sprinkle the remaining three tablespoonscoconut on top, pressing slightly into candy. Cool at room temperatureuntil set, about 30 to 40 minutes.
  • Remove candy from pan and peel off foil.Cut into 1-inch squares. Store in an airtight container.

    Makes 32 (1-inch) squares. (Do not doublethis recipe, make candy in individual batches.)

    *Do not use waxed paper for lining thepan, as the mixture is too hot and the wax on the paper willmelt onto the candy, causing the paper to adhere to it when itcools.

    Tip: For gift-giving or presentation, wrapcandies individually in small squares of waxed paper, twistingthe open ends on each side in the opposite direction to seal,like how saltwater taffy is wrapped.
