Coconut Ice

Coconut IceI’m sure most people out there have their ‘always include’ ingredient, or the little something that when ever you see it in a recipe book it goes on your must make list. Wether it be topping everything sweet you make with chocolate shavings, or adding pesto to every dish of pasta you whip up (guilty!). Well one of my favourite favourite ingredients to use is coconut (along with cinnamon, coriander, macadamias, mango… the list is quite extensive really!)
When I came upon this recipe, and after seeing the sweets delightful image here and there I felt it was time to whip up this sweet and coconut flavour filled favourite.

The condensed milk keeps the no-bake slice moist and creamy, and the pink layer brightening up the sweet as well as the shredded coconut garnish adding a subtle crunch to perfectly top of this nibble.
So…. heeeere we go!
