How to make it

  • Use a copper or other heavy saucepan.
  • Put sugar into the saucepan with the water and let it boil well.
  • When it begins to form a syrup, remove it from the heat and stir in the grated coconut.
  • Mix thoroughly and return the pan to the heat add nuts.
  • Be careful to stir the mixture constantly from the time you add the coconut. Cook it for 2 to 3 minutes; it will begin to bubble and should have reached the thread stage on a candy thermometer.
  • This will be sufficient cooking if you wish the pralines to be light and flaky. Add the coloring, just before taking the mixture from the heat.
  • Have ready a wet marble slab or buttered platter.
  • Take a kitchen spoon and use it to drop spoonfull of the mixture onto the slab or platter, spreading them out with a fork until they form neat round cakes about 1/4 inch thick and 4 or 5 inches in diameter.
  • Let them dry, then take a knife and gently raise them from the slab or dish.
  • Use as a garnish with cakes, pudding or alone. :)
