Petit Fours: Australian Candy - Coconut Ice




About: Find me on Steemit = IndoRecipe, YouTube = becakpilot and/or IndoRecipe, Instagram = IndoRecipedotcom

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

    Have you tried freezing them? How did that work out?

    They are good for freezing. Just thaw them in the fridge.
