This super easy, totally fool-proof dessert will be perfect for any coconut lover. Sweet, chewy coconut goodness set over a crunchy chocolate flavoured base… simple perfection!
- 397g / 1 tin condensed milk
- 350g digestive biscuits
- 200g desiccated unsweetened coconut
- 150g unsalted butter
- 2tbsp cocoa powder
In a medium size bowl mix together the coconut and condensed milk. Use a silicone spatula to mix it well. Put it aside to allow the coconut to soak up some of the milk.
Place your biscuits into a strong zip lock plastic bag and use a rolling pin to crush them down until you are left with fine crumbs.
In a medium size saucepan melt the butter and then add the biscuits, cocoa powder and mix until well combined.
Place your buttery biscuit mixture into a square 20cm tin (the ones with a loose bottom would be ideal but not necessary). Use something heavy and flat to press it down evenly.
Once the bottom layer is nicely flat, spread your coconut mixture over the top. At this time your coconut goodness should be very thick and not very pliable as the coconut will have soaked in a lot of moisture from the milk. Use plastic bag to make a glove or simply use food grade plastic gloves if you own any and press it down using the palm of your hand.
When you are pleased with the final effect pop it into the fridge and refrigerate for at least a couple of hours before digging in.
Cut into your desired size of squares and enjoy!
So easy yet so delicious!
Normally we keep these coconut squares in the fridge at all-times but once they are properly chilled they don’t have to be kept refrigerated; they will still keep theirs shape and form.
