Coconut gumdrops are a delicious and chewy sweet treat that are perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth. These little goodies are made with coconut and sugar, and have a soft and gooey texture that is hard to resist. Plus, they’re super easy to make at home!


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, coconut flakes, water, and corn syrup. Stir everything together until the sugar is fully dissolved.
  2. Place the saucepan over medium heat and bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly.
  3. Once the mixture reaches a boil, reduce the heat to low and continue to cook the gumdrops for about 5 minutes, or until they start to pull away from the sides of the pan and form a soft ball when dropped into a cup of cold water.
  4. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let the mixture cool for a few minutes.
  5. If you want to add some color to your gumdrops, stir in a few drops of food coloring at this point.
  6. Once the mixture has cooled enough to handle, use your hands to shape it into small balls or any other desired shape.
  7. Place the gumdrops on a sheet of wax paper and let them cool completely.
  8. Once the gumdrops are fully cooled, they are ready to be enjoyed!

And that’s it! With just a few simple ingredients and a bit of time, you can make a batch of delicious coconut gumdrops at home. These treats are perfect for snacking on anytime, or for giving as a special gift. Just be sure to store them in an airtight container to keep them fresh and chewy.
