Coconut Ice

A simple no-bake treat to take into work this week. The recipe is a simple recipe: equal parts condensed milk, icing sugar and desiccated coconut. So given a small can of condensed milk is 397g, an dhow much icing sugar last left in the box, I ended up with:

  • 397g condensed milk
  • 390g icing sugar
  • 400g desiccated coconut

This all gets bunged into the mixed and it does the hard work, forming a really stiff mix.

And they taste… sweet of course! It’s sugar and sugar milk and sugared coconut! But mmm… fattening :)
