A delicious, mildly sweet candy requires only one ingredient, coconut butter. Coconut butter is simply the blended meat of a coconut. Some manufactures label this as "Coconut Manna". Before you can make candy, check to see if the coconut fat has seprated and risen to the top of the jar; if so, you will need to melt the contents of the jar to re-emulsify it. After you have re-mixed the contents you are ready to pour it into candy molds (or you can allow it harden and melt it later). To avoid burning, melt a chunk in a silicone egg poaching cup over a mug warmer. The silicone cup is flexible and will allow you to easily pour the melted coconut butter into candy molds.
