375g Dessicated Coconut
375 g Icing Sugar
397g Can of Condensed Milk
Place coconut and icing sugar into a bowl then pour over the condensed milk.
Mix these ingredients thoroughly
Once mixed divide into two portions one remains white the other add a few drops of food colouring and mix carefully. I find sometimes when Ive added the food colouring it helps to add just a little sprinkle more icing sugar as the food colouring increases stickiness.
Line a baking tray with baking parchment or cling film either seems to work.
Put white mix into the base of the tray and press down firmly. You want a layer of about 1cm. Then add the coloured layer and press down firmly.
Place in the fridge for a few hours or even better still over night
Then tip out onto a sheet of icing sugar dusted baking parchment or chapping block and cut into squares
