Key Ingredients
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, plus extra for greasing foil and saucepan
  • 2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 2 cups (12-ounce package) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Premier White Morsels
  • 1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow crème
  • 3/4 cup macadamia nuts, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Make It
Step 1
Line 9-inch-square baking pan with foil, extending foil over edges of pan. Grease foil with butter. Butter sides of 3-quart heavy-duty saucepan.
Step 2
Combine sugar, coconut milk and remaining 1/2 cup butter in prepared saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until mixture boils. Clip a candy thermometer to side of pan, making sure the bottom of the thermometer does not touch bottom of pan. Reduce heat to medium-low. Continue boiling at a moderate, steady rate without stirring, until thermometer registers 238° F., softball stage (about 15 minutes). Adjust heat as necessary to maintain a steady boil. Remove from heat.
Step 3
Stir in morsels until melted and smooth. Stir in marshmallow crème, nuts, vanilla and coconut extracts until well combined. Transfer mixture to prepared baking pan; cool for 3 to 4 hours or until firm.
Step 4
Lift from pan; remove foil. Cut into 48 pieces. Store tightly covered.
