    care to share your coconut ice recipe? Loving the little rainbows of goodness!


    Good job!! I enjoyed those anzacs you baked on the way home....you even inspired me to make them (almost - well, I thought about it, then ran out of time!!),


    Coconut Ice:
    Combine 1 can of sweetened condensed milk, 3 1/3 cups of icing sugar and 4 1/4 cups desiccated coconut. mix well, divide the mixture in half. Press half in the base of a small slab tin, colour the rest with food dye. Press the pink mixture over the white slab. Chill until firm.

    I just remembered that I also used to add a bit of lemon juice when I made this as a kid, so that might help with mixing and rolling it out. It was tough going! The cold weather wouldn't have helped either I'm sure. Enjoy!
