Coconut Ice


900g Selati white sugar
300ml milk
300g desiccated coconut
Few drops of pink food colouring
Popping candy (optional)


Place the sugar and milk into a heavy based saucepan and stir until the sugar has dissolved completely.
Bring to a boil, cover and boil for 3 minutes.
Uncover and boil for a further 3-5 minutes or until the mixture reaches soft ball stage.
Remove from the heat and add the coconut and stir well.
Quickly pour half the mixture into a greased 22cm lined pan.
Colour the rest of the mixture with pink food colouring and pour over the white layer.
Sprinkle with popping candy, if desired.
Allow to set slightly before cutting into squares with a greased knife.
Allow to set completely.
