This started as coconut Cocada, a 'zaar recipe from Sharon123, but here in the tropics it's difficult to get candies to set, and so my results soon became the base for a new recipe. This is a sweet, dense, coconut bar full of flavour and filling enough to serve as a desert in itself.


  1. First boil sugar and lime juice to 230 degrees F.
  2. Remove from heat and add coconut, stirring hard.
  3. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  4. Mix in salt, flour and egg.
  5. Pour into 9 inch square tray and bake at 350 degrees for 15 - 18 minutes until lightly browned.
  6. Mark into 16 squares while still warm.
