For those who asked!
Combine 1 can condensed milk, 3 1/3 cups icing sugar, 4 1/4 cups desicated coconut. Mix well. Mixture is dry. Divide the mixture in half. Press half in the base of a small slab tin that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Colour the rest with a few drops of cochineal or red food colouring. Press the pink mixture over the white slab. Chill until firm. Cut into squares.
My Grandmother's Toffee
250g butter, 2 cups sugar, 2 cans condensed milk.
Melt butter, add sugar and condensed milk. Boil slowly, constantly stirring with a wooden spoon for about 20 - 25 minutes. Mixture will thicken and turn a golden brown colour. Toffee is ready when it reaches the small ball stage ~ a small amount of mixture is dropped into a glass of cold water, if it forms a ball it is ready. Pour into a slab tin that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Chill until firm. Cut into squares.
All I can say is YUM!
