Recipe by Kolinka
READY IN: 3hrs 9mins




  • Using the broil setting, toast the coconut on a flat cookie sheet make sure it is well spread out.
  • This only takes a few minutes and will burn if left unattended.
  • Chop the cashews and spread evenly over the bottom of an ungreased 9x9" baking pan that has sides; sprinkle the toasted coconut evenly over the nuts.
  • Combine the butter, sugar and water in a large heavy saucepan.
  • Stir over medium heat until ingredients are combined.
  • Continue stirring until mixture reaches the hard crack stage, stirring constantly (approximately 45 minutes).
  • Pour over nuts & coconut and making sure mixture is disbursed evenly (you may tilt slightly while candy is still liquid to achieve this).
  • Let sit for about an hour.
  • Microwave about 3 chunks of the white chocolate almond bark for about a minute, stir to check consistency and return to microwave for about 15 seconds each time until smooth and spreadable.
  • Once white chocolate mixture is smooth, spread over the top of candy's surface so it is completely covered.
  • Once cooled, use a very sharp french knife and cut into 1" squares.
