15 oz milk cooking chocolate
4 cups shredded coconut
1 can (384ml) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup Icing/Powdered sugar
In a large mixing bowl mix together the coconut, sugar and condensed milk.
Line a 9 x 12 inch foil tray with greaseproof paper or baking parchment.
Empty the coconut mixture into the tray pressing it down and levelling it flat.
Refrigerate over night.
Turnout the coconut and cut into 2 x 1 inch rectangles
Melt the chocolate over a pan of boiled water stiring all the time to keep the chocolate shiny and glossy. Be careful not to splash water into the chocolate.
Remove the bowl from the pan and allow the chocolate to cool for a few minutes.
Working swiftly drop one if the coconut blocks into the chocolate coating it completely using two forks.
Allow excess chocolate to drip away as you lift out the chocolate covered treat and place on greaseproof/parchment and allow to cool
As the chocolate cool and solidifies you can patten the bars with a fork and decorate
Sprinkle with a little coconut or crystal sugar
You can also melt white chocolate and drizzle over the treats
When cooling do not place in the fridge as the chocolate will go dull
If you dont want to make bars you can always make balls of the mixture for a chocolate treat
I also added glace cherries to some of the mixture to make a treat like the old 1970s/1980s Roundtree Cabana Bars
