I am revising the recipe as I always end up adding more condensed milk. This is a good recipe. No raw egg white or copha. It's very rich and creamy and lasts two weeks in the fridge.
This is a big batch.
In a big bowl combine 5 cups icing sugar with 3 and a half cups desiccated coconut. Add two cans condensed milk and blend. Work until it's a thick play doh consistency.
Line a big baking pan with non stick baking paper. Press this mixture firmly into it, making an even layer with a flat surface.
Repeat the first step... add 5 cups icing sugar... etc... exactly the same and add a few drops of pink colouring. Only about 3 or 4 drops. You can darken it but go easy as too dark looks horrible. Think milk shake pink. Now this takes a lot of stirring... and then knead it using some icing sugar if it's too sticky so you get the colour smoothly blended. Once it looks smooth and soft pink press this over the white layer in your pan.
Thats it. Refrigerate for a few hours before cutting.
Pink ribbon and cellophane are my packing method. Organza ribbon looks gorgeous too as it is so soft and girly.
I added some pretty tags.
Some years I cut heart shapes, this year I did individual serves and family sizes.
It's a perfect little treat for gifts and keep a few pieces ready for visitors!
