Grease a small square tin.
Gently heat caster sugar with milk till sugar dissolves.
Bring to a rapid boil for 10 mins.
Add 5 oz desiccated coconut, you now need to work pretty quickly.
Press half the mixture in the tin.
Colour the remaining with a couple of drops of red food colouring and press the rest into the tin.
Mark into squares with the back of a knife and allow to cool, then cut into squares.
