Ingredients

  •  5 ¼ cups (840g) icing sugar

    2 ½ cups (200g) desiccated coconut
     
    395g can sweetened condensed milk
     
    1 egg white, beaten lightly
     
    Food colouring

Method

  • 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.

    Note

    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.
