Coconut Ice

An old favourite! I found this recipe from Huletts Sugar and I am going to make this tonight- so excited! What a treat.

Makes about  36 squares


900g (4½ cups) Huletts White Sugar
300ml (1¼ cups) milk
300g (3¾ cups) desiccated coconut
Few drops of pink food colouring


  1. Place the sugar and milk into a heavy-based saucepan. Heat gently, stirring with a wooden spoon until the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Bring to a rapid boil, cover with the lid and boil for 3 minutes.
  3. Uncover and boil for a further 3 – 5 minutes or until the mixture has reached the soft ball stage. (when a little syrup is dropped into iced water it forms a ball which flattens of its own accord when picked up with the fingers. About 25 – 30 minutes)
  4. Remove from the heat and add the coconut. Stir until combined.
  5. Quickly pour half the mixture into a 22cm square greased and lined pan. Stand the saucepan in a bowl of hot water to prevent setting. Colour with a few drops of pink food colouring. Pour the pink mixture over the white mixture working quickly.
  6. Leave till half set. Cut into squares using an oiled knife. Leave to set completely. Store in an airtight container.
