Coconut ice sweets – Delightful sweet treat

Looking for a quick and easy sweet treat to whip together for the family. These coconut ice sweets are just what you are looking for. Also known as klapperys, this all-time favourite is everything you are looking for in a sweet treat.

It is super easy to prepare and no cooking or baking is involved. Simply prepare it in 15 minutes and allow it to rest and set it in the fridge for at least two hours. It is best however if you can let it set in the fridge overnight.

These coconut ice sweets are perfect to make in large batches to keep the family and little ones satisfied for a long period of time. This treat will remind you of your childhood birthday parties and of course the sweets table at any outdoor festival.

Traditionally coconut ice sweets are always pink and white, but you can experiment and use lots of different colours to keep this snack exciting.

INGREDIENTS

  • 350 g desiccated (shredded) coconut (3.5 cups)
  • 1 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 350 g sieved icing sugar (3 cups)
  • ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 2 drops red food colouring

METHOD

  • Line a 24 cm cake tin that is about 4 cm deep with baking paper and grease it with a little butter.
  • Into a mixing bowl, add the coconut, condensed milk, vanilla extract and icing sugar and stir really well until all ingredients are combined.
  • Then take out half of the mixture and lay it out flat and evenly in the baking tin.
  • With the other half add the drops of food colouring and mix in. Add more if you want the colour to be more prominent. Then layer this over the white layer in the tin.
  • Refrigerate for a minimum of 2 hours, it’s better if you can make this the evening before and let it set overnight.
  • Once set, cut into bite sized squares and enjoy!
