5 ¼ cups (840g) icing sugar2 ½ cups (200g) desiccated coconut395g can sweetened condensed milk1 egg white, beaten lightlyFood colouring
Line a deep 19cm-square cake pan with strips of baking paper.
Sift icing sugar into large bowl; stir in coconut, then condensed milk and egg white.
Divide mixture in half; tint half with food colouring of your choice. Press coloured mixture into pan then top with white mixture. Cover; refrigerate about 3 hours, or until, set before cutting into squares.
To incorporate the colour evenly, knead the colour into coconut ice mixture like kneading bread dough. The coloured coconut ice will set a darker colour than they first appear in the mixture.
