Ingredients

How to make it

  • In medium sauce pan, over low heat, melt candy melts and sweetened condensed milk until smooth.
  • Add coconut and stir to combine well. See Photo
  • Melt baking chocolate in small glass bowl, with shortening, in microwave.
  • Separate coconut mixture into 3 small, microwave safe bowls, equally.
  • In one bowl, add vanilla, and mix well. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, add chocolate and mix well. Set aside
  • In last bowl, add cherry juice, mix well, and set aside. See Photo
  • Spray 3 aluminum mini loaf pans with no stick spray.
  • Spread chocolate mixture evening between the three pans and spread to edges. See Photo
  • Slightly warm vanilla mixture, if needed, in microwave, just until it can be poured/spread.
  • Pour over chocolate mixture and spread to the edges. See Photo
  • Repeat with cherry mixture. See Photo
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 6 hours or, overnight.
  • When completely cooled and set, carefully cut down sides of pans and peel away from the candy rectangle.
  • Cut into squares by cutting once, lengthwise, then 3 times, width wise, to give 8 pieces of candy from each pan.
  • These are much richer than the store bought variety, so don't make the pieces too big!
  • Wrap individually in wax paper, if desired.
