Whip up a batch of these simple confections to serve your coconut- loving Valentine.
14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
5 cups confectioner's sugar
5 cups shredded coconut
pink food coloring (optional)
Line an 8 or 9 inch square baking pan with parchment or waxed paper. In a large bowl, combine milk, and confectioner's sugar. Stir in coconut. Mix until well combined, and a stiff mixture is achieved. Divide mixture in half. Press half of mixture into lined baking pan. Gently roll a drinking glass back and forth to smooth it out. Gently knead in a few drops of food coloring to the second half of mixture. Press it on top of first layer. Roll again with drinking glass. Cover well and chill. After several hours or overnight, cut into 3/4 to 1 inch squares.
