500 grams of fresh coconut
1 cup and 1/2 of crystal sugar
3/4 cup of water
1 can of whole condensed milk (395 grams)
Pulp of a passion fruit (about 100 grams)
Method of preparation:
First, to make the creamy passion fruit coconut candy, put the sugar and water in a pan and stir well, then cook until it starts to boil.
Soon after, when it is forming a syrup, add the coconut and stir without stopping, so as not to stick to the pan. The sugar will dry the coconut, after that add the condensed milk and passion fruit pulp.
Then, stir until it starts to come off the bottom of the pan. Use a thicker pan so it cooks without burning.
When it is ungluing, it is already ready to be removed from the fire.
Pour on top of marble greased with unsalted butter. With the help of 2 spoons, shape the coconut sweets.
Finally, let it dry and then be packed.
