East Indian Coconut Fudge – Coconut Cordial Christmas Sweet
Coconut Cordial sweet or coconut fudge is an East-Indian specialty made during Christmas. Packed with coconut flavor and a little cashew nuts this is a very addictive dessert. I highly recommend making more than you think you need.
If you love coconut you will love this recipe. It does involve some effort to stir the coconut and sugar over low heat until you have a thick mass which can then be cut into shapes. A word of caution – make sure you use a spoon or spatula with a long handle because as with all fudge this one has a lot of splattering.
