Preschooler Cooking: Coconut Ice

Whilst the baby was sleeping, Miss 3 and I made coconut ice. It's quick and requires no cooking - really she could do this by herself if I measured out all the ingredients. It's also tasty and terribly unhealthy!

Pour a 400 g tin of condensed milk into a bowl.

Then sift in 350 g icing sugar

Add 350 g desiccated coconut and stir until there are no dry bits left. The mixture gets quite stiff, so your little one might need help with the stirring. Then line a tin with plastic wrap and pat half of the mixture into the tin.

Add red food colouring and stir again (Miss 3 has a fascination with food dye. She poured blue dye on the carpet once. I have learned. Don't leave small children alone with dye.), then spread the pink mixture over the white. Place it in the refrigerator for a few hours to set.

When set, remove the coconut ice from the tin, cut it up into bite-sized pieces, and eat it.
