  1. Combine coconut sugar, coconut milk/cream, water, and salt on stove.
  2. Bring mixture to boil then reduce heat to low, stir/whisk until coconut sugar begins to caramelize, about 20 minutes, make sure it doesn't burn/stick to bottom.
  3. Add more water if it hasn't caramelized enough after 20 minutes and keep cooking til color gets darker.
  4. Turn off heat, add vanilla, add coconut and mix until coconut is well coated and mixture is sticky & pliable.
  5. Spoon onto parchment-lined baking tray and shape into coconut candy.
