  • 400 g sugar
  • 1⁄2 cup milk
  • 120 g desiccated coconut
  • Red food colouring, a dash
  1. Boil the sugar and milk for 8–9 minutes. Stir in the coconut and mix well. Press one half of the mixture into a greased dish.
  2. Add a spot of food colouring to the remaining mixture and press it on top of the white layer. Cool and cut into bars.

Cook's note: My mom Ruth Dudley‘s coconut ice is beloved by friends and family alike. You should see people’s
eyes light up when they are recipients of it.
