Do you remember those little Brach's coconut candies when you were a kid that were pink, white and brown striped? I have always loved them. For those of you who love them as well, check out this photo, doesn't that just make you want to be in that picture with your hands ALL OVER THEM??? Naomi so graciously gave the link to the recipe which I copied and have posted below. Now I can make them on my own!
5¼ cups (840g) icing sugar*
2½ cups (200g) dessicated coconut*
395g can sweetened
1 egg white, beaten lightly
pink food colouring
Line deep 19cm-square cake pan with strips of baking paper.
Sift icing sugar into large bowl; stir in coconut, then condensed milk and egg white.
Divide mixture in half; tint half with pink colouring. Press pink mixture into pan then top with white mixture. Cover; refrigerate about 3 hours or until set before cutting into squares.
*just for clarification, "icing sugar" is powdered sugar. Also, the coconut is sweetened and I just ran it through my food processor to "dessicate" it.
