Chewy candies that kids really like. You can make them plain but the lime juice and cloves add an interesting twist.

Directions

  1. Line a baking tray with parchment.
  2. Place the coconut in a pan with the water and sugar.
  3. Heat gently until the sugar dissolves.
  4. Stir in the ground cloves and lime juice and increase heat.
  5. Cool, stirring with a wooden spoon, until the mixture has thickened and become dark golden brown.
  6. Drop spoonfuls of the mixture on to the lined tray, pressing down with the back of the spoon to flatten it lightly into chunky, irregular pieces.
  7. Leave to cool before eating.
