Homemade Toasted Coconut Fudge Recipe

If you enjoy fudge but would like to try something other than the classic vanilla fudge recipe then I think you will enjoy this toasted coconut fudge recipe that I got from my mother a few years ago. I do recommend that you use a candy thermometer to ensure your fudge making success. You can toast your coconut flakes in your home oven for 1-2 minutes at 350 degrees.

Homemade Toasted Coconut Fudge Recipe

2 cups granulated sugar
2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup milk
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup toasted coconut flakes (shredded coconut)

In a large saucepan combine together the sugar, cream, milk, corn syrup and salt. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly until the mixture boils. You want to continue stirring and boiling it until a candy thermometer reaches 234 degrees F. Remove from the heat. Cool fudge in the saucepan until it reaches 110 degrees F and then stir in the vanilla extract. Beat with an electric mixer until the fudge starts to thicken and then pour into a greased 8" by 8" glass baking dish. Sprinkle the toasted coconut flakes on top. As it cools it will harden even more. After 2 hours...your fudge is ready for eating!
