  • In a medium sauce pan dissolve corn starch in water completely. Add sugar and whisk until well blended.
  • Turn on low heat and continue stirring until the mixture thickens to soft playdough consistency.
  • Remove from heat and transfer to a small bowl. Allow to cool completely at room temperature or in the fridge.
  • In the meantime, in a mixer, combine butter, powdered sugar and beat until light and fluffy.
  • Add in the corn starch mixture and continue mixing until completely combined. Mix in ½ cup of coconut on low speed. When fully combined transfer to fridge for at least 30 minutes for the mixture to set.
  • Spread 1 cup of coconut on a plate. Scoop up a heaping tablespoon full of the mixture and roll into a ball. Roll the ball in the coconut to cover and place into the candy cups.
