Pineapple Coconut Ice

Remembering the delicious coconut ice my mother made for our school fetes in the 1960s! Anne

1 can sweetened condensed milk; 500g icing sugar; 390g/5 cups desiccated coconut; pineapple essence; yellow food colouring
Combine sweetened condensed milk, icing sugar and desiccated coconut.
Divide mixture into two.
Press half the mixture into an 18cm x 18cm loaf pan.
Mix a few drops (not too much!) of yellow food colouring and pineapple essence into the remaining half of the mixture. Press into the pan on top of the first layer. To ease spreading slightly wet a knife in warm water and smooth over the top.
Allow to set before cutting into squares.
