The husband is a huge fan of old fashioned coconut ice...so on Sunday I decided to try my hand at making some. I had no clue how to make these, so I found the easiest recipe that I could find...
400g desiccated coconut, 500g icing sugar, 1 tin condensed milk (400g),
a few drops of red food coloring
Combine the coconut icing sugar in a large bowl, add the condensed milk and mix well.
Tint with a few drops of the food coloring and mix until you get the color you like.
Turn the mixture out onto a baking tray, press down and cut into squares before it gets too hard.
Leave to harden for about ½ hour. I put mine in the fridge to harden.
Make another batch but don’t add the coloring and simply place over the top to get the layered effect.
Needless to say...I have scored mega 'wife points' with the hubby.
They are divine...and super easy to make. I think this will becoming a staple in our household...
