I've just made these. Fantastically easy. My tin was a little bigger so I made double the amount but made it in 2 batches. The pink layer is easiest to colour if you colour the condensed milk before adding it to the dry mixture - you get a more even colour.
I have just made my second batch of coconut ice, great recipe and yes I agree it is better colour the condensed milk first. My friends husband tasted it and loved it so much he went home with half of what I made.
Perfect! So simple and quick. It never lasts long!
OK this is 5 stars because it is simple and easy. We did find they are extremely sweet though, but then they are candy which I didn't cut in too large squares. I made my own powdered sugar to be corn free by grinding regular white sugar in a coffee grinder. I ground my unsweetened coconut flakes as well to be finer. Not sure I would make them again because of the sweetness but they did turn out well.
This was exactly the recipe I was looking for. We used to make this when I was little and wanted to make it with my son. Turns out great. Thanks Heather.
This worked out so well! It is absolutely delicious and exactly as I remember when I ate it years ago.. and so EASY!. thanks so much for a top recipe.
