About this recipe: This is one I learned as a teenager and now I've started making it again for the dreaded fundraisers! It's simple - the only cooking is melting the coconut.


Serves: 10 

  • 2 egg whites
  • 250g icing sugar
  • 90g dessicated coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 250g coconut oil
  • few drops red food colouring

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:1hr  ›  Ready in:1hr5min 

  1. Beat the egg whites a little - just to combine - and then mix in the sugar, coconut and vanilla.
  2. Melt the coconut oil over a low heat and stir into the other ingredients.
  3. Line a square cake tin with baking paper and press half of the mixture into it.
  4. Drop a few drops of red food colouring into the rest of the mix to make it pink and press it firmly on top.
  5. Smooth it all out then put in the fridge till set - about an hour - then cut into squares.
