Coconut ice

Coconut ice

This is a cold mix recipe since I rarely boiled sugar in the classroom – it was much too dangerous if they licked the hot spoon and burnt off bits of tongue.

200 g icing sugar

Evaporated milk

100 g desiccated coconut

Red colouring

Sugar for dredging


Sieve the icing sugar into a bowl and stir in enough milk to make a stiff paste.

Divide the mixture into two halves and colour one half pink.

Dredge some sugar on the work surface and pat the white half of the coconut into a thin oblong.

Now make an equal sized pink oblong and push together to form the coconut bar.

Dust with icing sugar and leave to dry.
