This recipe has been modified and is based on the Coconut Ice recipe from Cakes and Cookies by Imagine That
7 ½ cups castor sugar
25 grams butter
1 ¾ cups desiccated coconut
Pink food colouring
18 cm square baking tin
Line the tin with grease proof paper. Make sure there are no folds or crinkles in the cooking paper.
Place the sugar, butter and milk into a pan over medium heat and bring the mixture to a boil. Let the mixture simmer for four minutes, stirring all the time.
Remove the pan from heat and stir in coconut.
Pour half the mixture into the tin and leave it to cool a little.
Add a few drops of food colouring to the other half of the mixture. Pour it on top of the mixture in the tin and leave it to set.
