Coconut fans get ready to find a new favorite treat. Made from shredded and desiccated coconut, this is deeply flavorful and almost “healthy.” Warning: This fudge is so deliciously decadent that you may not be able to stop eating it.
Coconut Fudge Recipe
- 2.5 C Shredded Unsweetened Coconut
- 1 C Desiccated Coconut
- ½ C Sugar
- 1 can Condensed Milk
- 2 T Ground Cardamom
- 1 C Unsalted Butter
- 1 C Roasted Unsalted Pistachios, finely chopped
Heat a pot over medium to low heat. Add shredded coconut, desiccated coconut, sugar, and condensed milk. Cook, stirring frequently for 20-25 minutes until the mixture has thickened. Should NOT brown! Stir in the ground cardamom and butter and remove from heat. Pour the coconut mixture into a baking dish covered with parchment paper and spread out about ½ inch thick. Top with pistachios. Press in lightly. Chill and then cut out into ½ inch pieces.
Just for fun we cut ours with a round cookie cutter, because we could…Enjoy!
