Introduction: Petit Fours: Australian Candy - Coconut Ice

About: Hi! I am Klinong, that is how my loving family calls me, except my brother, he calls me Krinyol, as I have silly curly hair :) I love Instructables for forever now, especially for the contests ha-ha!, but I …

I called these as Australian candies because I have known them since I was a child as Australian delicacy. Many would say they are British candies, and that makes sense as well, as you know, Australians were originally from Britain :) But to be fair, other countries seem to have similar candies too with different names obviously!

Step 1: Ingredients

1 can, 300 ml, sweetened condensed milk

200 g sweetened desiccated coconut

200 g unsweetened desiccated coconut

4-5 c icing sugar (mixture should not be too sticky)

food coloring of your choice

NOTE: if you like them to be super sweet, use 400 g sweetened coconut. If not too sweet, use all 400 g unsweetened. Or you can do as I do here, half sweet half not. These candies are MEGA sweet, so most of the time I use all 400 g unsweetened :)

Step 2: Method

Mix all ingredients in a bowl until combined well

Divide into 6 equal portions

Color 2 portions with red food coloring, 2 portions with green food coloring and leave the other 2 portions plain white

Roll each portion and press it to a mold

Stack each portion alternating one to another and each time, press them firmly

Chill in the fridge for 4 H or overnight

Step 3: Enjoy~

Once chilled, take out candy from fridge and slice.

That is all :)

Note: you can place them in mini cupcake liner and serve them as petit fours for party
