2 Cups sugar
1 Cup coconut milk and water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 dash green and red food coloring
1 Cup grated fresh coconut
1 Cup candied cherries

Preparation / Directions:

Mix sugar and coconut milk and water in saucepan. Bring to boil, and cook until a small amount of mixture forms a soft ball when dropped in cold water (240-F). Pour onto a wet platter, and let stand until lukewarm. Add vanilla, and beat until thick and creamy. Knead until smooth. Divide, and add a few drops of green coloring to half and red coloring to other half. Sprinkle coconut on a cookie sheet. Dry in slow oven, 250-F, about 15 minutes. Work half of coconut into each mixture. Heat each mixture over boiling water until softened; drop from teaspoon on waxed paper, and flatten slightly. Put a bit of cherry in the center of each. Let harden.
