    I especially like the "Almond Joy" version of this recipe. I found it years ago in Family Circle.

      I used a digital meat probe loosely wrapped around my candy thermometer; and that really helped. I am not sure whether it made a difference or not. . . but I used clear Harris Teeter light corn syrup. because I wanted my candies to be as pale as possible. I feel that the coconut dough was too wet and needed more coconut, about 16 ounces would probably have been perfect; as I noted in the store that the HT clear was runnier than the Caro. I also added 1/2 t vanilla and 1/2 t coconut extract. It is moist and delicious. This dough was extremely sticky to work with. I recommend wearing plastic gloves or putting it in a cookie press to fill your molds. I also think that the dough would have a better texture if the coconut were processed in the food processor. This is my picture here with the pink chocolates . . . what you cannot see is that the coconut dough weeps through the chocolate at the bottom because it is too wet, but they are fantastic, and I can't recommend white chocolate enough for these! This is only my first attempt at trying this. To get it into bars, I had to press out the dough between two silicone pads, freeze, and chop into squares, it was hard to do, but I couldn't work with it room temp except as balls. Using a mold would have been alot easier; if I do it again, that's what I'll try.
