Yeah, I can try to explain it. It tasted like a Girl Scout Samoa Cookie. It was in smaller pieces that were a dark brown and it was like shredded pieces of coconut w/ some kind of sugary syrup in it. It may have been dark corn syrup, maple syrup. Not sure really but it was DELICIOUS =)

well let me put my piece in the one i like is.

JAMAICAN COCONUT DROPS RECIPE

Ingredients:

I cup chopped ginger
2 cups of brown sugar
3 cups firmly packed coconut residue from the
traditional Jamaican coconut rundown recipe or 3 cups of freshly chopped coconuts
3 cups of water

Jamaican coconut drops is usually made with coconuts that is finely diced by hand. We are substituting the coconut residue for the rundown recipe above. The residue has less oil. Or you can use three cups of freshly chopped coconuts. We are keeping the sugar to a minimum by
suggesting only two cups of brown sugar. Both ginger and coconuts are natural remedies for stomach ailments. In addition ginger is said to be a remarkable remedy for colds. Therefore coconut drops which is made from coconuts and ginger is as healthful as candy gets.

Process
Chop a quarter of a pound of pealed fresh ginger that has been cut into small pieces in a blender using the chop setting. Use only enough water to make the blender operate smoothly. In a large uncovered cooking pot mix one cup of this chopped ginger and water, 2 cups of brown sugar, 3 cups of firmly packed coconut and 3 cups of water. Bring to a rapid boil and reduce the flame to
medium to high. Allow the mixture to cook until it thickens. Reduce the flame to low to medium. Use a large spoon to continuously turn the mixture to prevent it from burning or sticking to the cooking pot. The idea is to cook the mixture until the sugar begins to caramelize. When sugar begins to form at the bottom of the cooking pot and it is very difficult to turn the mixture with the spoon, reduce the flame to the lowest setting. Use a tablespoon to spoon the mixture and drop it onto the smooth side of aluminum foil or into a baking pan. You may use more fancy methods such
as special forms to shape the drops in any desired shape. Allow to cool.
