Com­bine the con­densed milk, ic­ing sugar, des­ic­cated co­conut, vanilla ex­tract and co­conut oil in a bowl and mix well. Di­vide the mix­ture in two and press half into the base of the pre­pared tin. Add a hint of pink food colour­ing to the re­main­ing mix­ture and stir to com­bine.

Turn the mix­ture out on to a large cutting board, peel off the pa­per and, us­ing a cookie cut­ter, cut into shapes or slice into squares. Store in an air­tight con­tainer.
