Coconut Surprise Candy


3-INGREDIENT COCONUT CANDY

Based on a recipe from Heidi Haughy Cusick's book, Soul and Spice, African Cooking in the Americas. This book is chock-filled with Caribbean, Bahia Brazilian, and Louisiana Creole recipes. She says, "Known as tablette in the Caribbean and cocada in Bahia, this confection combines the Spanish and Portuguese penchant for sweets with the African resourcefulness for using available ingredients: sugar from the cane fields and the abundant adopted coconut. Easy to make, these candies have been satisfying sweet tooths in the Caribbean for two centuries." Historical note: Sugarcane came to the Caribbean with Columbus on his second voyage in 1494, when he established the first European settlement in the West Indies on Hispaniola; unrefined brown sugar was most commonly used in households; it came in foots, hard cylinders that were grated for use. I haven't tried this yet.

  1. Next, mix together the sugar free powdered sugar, coconut, and condensed milk. You can use a large bowl and eventually your hands (prep your hands first with oil or coconut butter) to do this or a food processor if needed. When you are able to form small balls, do so making the balls 1- 1 1/2" in diameter. Place the balls on to the prepped cookie sheet. Refrigerate this for 25-30 minutes or until firm. You can add your option nuts and additional sweetener during the ball forming process as well.
  2. Meanwhile, using a microwave safe bowl or a double boiler method, melt together the chocolate chips and margarine or coconut oil. In a microwave simply microwave, stopping every 30 seconds to stir until melted. The double boiler method entails simmering the water and then placing the chocolate and margarine or coconut oil in a bowl on top and stirring until melted
  3. To cover the balls in chocolate, simply use a spoon or something similar to dip each individual ball into the chocolate and then place the ball back on to the prepped cookie sheet. Allow this to set.

  1. Use a ladle to fill the plastic chocolate candy mold of your choice ( I used a small Bon Bon shape), with the tempered bittersweet chocolate. Tap the mold on the counter to encourage the air bubbles to depart. When the mold is full, empty it into the bowl of chocolate. The inside of each cavity should be evenly coated with chocolate. Scrape the mold clean with an offset spatula and place it upside down on a wire rack placed over a baking sheet. Once the chocolate starts to harden, about 5 minutes, scrape the edge clean again, with a chef's knife. When the chocolate sets, it shrinks or retracts from the sides of the mold. A clean edge will keep it from sticking and cracking as it shrinks. You can place the mold in the refrigerator for several minutes to help the chocolate to harden. Repeat with as many candy molds as you would like.
  2. For the filling: Place the coconut milk in a pan and bring to a boil. Stir in the corn syrup, coconut rum and rum. Place the white chocolate and in a large mixing bowl. Pour the hot coconut milk over the chocolate in the bowl and mix thoroughly. Stir in the shredded coconut. Allow the mixture to come to room temperature (though it should still be soft enough to pipe). Place the mixture in a piping bag and fill each chocolate cavity with the coconut mixture, to just shy of the top of the cavity. Allow this to set until the mixture hardens, about 2 hours.
  3. Use an offset spatula to cover the openings of each cavity with more tempered bittersweet chocolate. When the chocolate has begun to set, use an offset spatula to scrape away the excess chocolate. Allow the chocolate to set completely. Overturn the mold and give it a quick rap on the counter. The chocolates will release from the mold. They are ready to serve.
  4. Chocolate is tempered so that after it has been melted, it retains its gloss and hardens again without becoming chalky and white (that happens when the molecules of fat separate and form on top of the chocolate). There are a variety of ways to temper.
