Chewy Coconut Ice

Having recently received some coconut ice as a gift brought at a seaside resort I thought I would try making my own, turns out its quite hard to replicate the smoother fudge-like texture, these were still nice and chewy but slightly crumbly at the same time.

To make this you will need :

  • 340g Icing Sugar
  • 340g Desiccated Coconut
  • 400g Condensed Milk
  • Pink food colouring

  1. Heat the condensed milk in a pan over a low heat and gradually sieve the icing sugar in, keep mixing until the ugar has dissolved.
  2. Remove from the heat and add the coconut, mix well until all the mixture sticks together.
  3. Place half the mixture into a square pan.
  4. Add a couple of drops of food colouring to the remaining mix and stir until fully coated.
  5. Put the coloured mix on top of the plain side of the already setting mix and leave to set fully overnight.
  6. Remove from the square tin and slice into 1cm thick slices and store in an airtight container.
