Servings: 30
Preparation Time: up to 60 minutes

  • 14oz fresh coconut milk*
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • Course sea salt for sprinkling

Place coconut milk, sugar, butter and salt in saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring frequently. Continue cooking at a low boil and stirring for 30 minutes for sauce or 45-60 minutes for candies. At around 35-40 minutes the butter fat will separate from caramel, pour off and continue cooking to the desired texture (if more oil forms pour off). Keep an eye as it burns quickly at this point.

For sauce pour into jar and cool. For candies pour onto parchment paper and let cool slight then sprinkle with salt. Cool completely then cut into 1 inch squares.

* For the freshest coconut milk make homemade coconut milk. (See video at this link.)
