One of the best things I ever tasted from a NYC street vendor was warm, candied coconut. The flakes were crisp, sweet and totally addictive.

This recipe for Candied Coconut comes really close to what I had in NY. Just tuck the warm flakes into a little paper bag and hum “Start spreading the news….”

Ingredients:

2 Tbs water
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups coconut flakes

Directions:

1. Bring the water and sugar to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat.

2. When the sugar has dissolved add the coconut. Stir occasionally to coat the flakes.

3. At the 2 minute mark, stir vigorously. The water will evaporate about 1 minute later and the sugar will crystallize on the coconut. When all of the sugar has crystallized remove the pan from the heat and continue to stir. The sugar will turn light brown on the coconut.

4. Turn the candied coconut onto a parchment lined tray to cool.

I’ve always loved dancing around to Dean Martin singing ‘Sway’. This new version by Joanne Weaver makes me want to sing into my wooden spoon microphone and slink all around the kitchen. I love her sexy voice.

Check out Joanne Weaver on her Website where you can link to buy the music.

Cheers!
