Makes 50 pieces
6 1/4 cups (1kg) icing sugar mixture
3 1/3 cups (300g) desiccated coconut
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
395g can sweetened condensed milk
Yellow and red food colouring
Sift icing sugar into a bowl. Add coconut and stir well to combine. Combine eggwhite, vanilla and 2 tbs water then add to coconut mixture with condensed milk. Using a spoon, stir to combine, then using your hands, rub wet ingredients into dry ingredients until mixture comes together.
Grease a shallow 20cm square cake tin then line base and sides with baking paper. Divide mixture in 1/2. Press 1/2 over base of prepared tin. Smooth top.
Add 4-5 drops yellow colouring and 2-3 drops red colouring to remaining mixture, to obtain a pale orange colour. Knead with your hands to distribute colour. Press orange mixture over white in tin. Smooth top. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours or until firm.
Turn coconut ice out and cut into 3cm squares. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
