Little squares of pink and white, um, goodness

As retro treats go, coconut ice has to be up there at the top. It looks sweet, it tastes (incredibly) sweet, and what’s not to love about something whose only ingredients are condensed milk, icing sugar and dessicated coconut?

Admittedly, nutritionally it’s not wonderful that the nearest you’re getting to a whole food is the packet of coconut, and that you’re hoping that the red food colouring might in some way count towards your five a day, but that’s not really what sweets are about, is it?  They’re about a making a tiny perfect something, followed by the flashback to childhood when you eat them.  The assembly instructions that I used (recipe is rather too grand a word in this instance) are here.

Ahem, another square beckons.
