Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup large unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Coat a 12-by-17-inch rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Bring sugar and corn syrup to a boil in a medium saucepan, stirring and brushing down sides with a wet pastry brush to prevent sugar crystals from forming, until sugar dissolves. Cook, swirling occasionally, until mixture just starts to turn golden around edge.
