250g icing sugar
200g sweetened condensed milk
150g desiccated coconut
food colouring of choice (pink is traditional)
Put the coconut in a bowl, sift in the icing sugar and add the sweetened condensed milk. Mix together with a wooden spoon then kneed with your hand until mixture is firm.
Divide in half and add food colouring to one half, kneading until colour is thoroughly mixed in.
Shape each half into a bar of the same size and brush the top of one bar with cold water, place the other bar on top.
Sandwich the bars together and refrigerate.
When completely firm, cut into slices.
