Do you like coconut ice?

A bunny for Easter - I have some lovely rabbit models that would be great for Easter.

I had some delicious coconut ice for Easter for a change from chocolate. I have not had any for ages. I remember we used to get it at school fayres with soft round mint creams. What were those called? I supposed people are not allowed to sell home-made goods at fayres now unless it lists all of the ingredients and no human hand has touched it at all.

I love coconut Ice but haven't had it for a long long time. Used to have it Pink and White layers. Yum yum. Don't know about the mint creams although i have lots of sweet recipes in my cook books. think i might have a go at making some coconut ice with my little girl now that you've made me remember how much I like it. Happy eating!

That's the one. The mint creams were usually white but sometimes had green colouring in them. They were soft inside but had a yummy 'crust' outer. Glad to have been of some assistance. Thank you for your response - it was worth waiting to award the 'best response'.

Wow what is a coconut ice? Is it like a fruit shake? I havent tried one like that even if our country is full of coconuts.

Coconut ice is a sweet made with dessicated (chopped up) coconut. It is mixed with something to make it stick together and tastes yummy.

i think it may be mixed with condensed milk and icing sugar. but im not sure...just a guess. I'll have a look next time i'm looking in my cook books.

I cant say I know what those nice coconut ice mint things were called but I'm really not a big chocolate fan,so the 1 egg I got should still in my fridge in June.Give me licorice any day.

Really. That is unusual. I like liquorice but do not prefer it to other sweets.

I think they are called pepermint creams. I haven't had coconut ice for donkeys years, I had forgotten it existed but now it has made me want to look out for some next time I go shopping. I used to love it as I do have a sweet tooth and love coconut so it was a perfect combination.
