I have such fond memories of making Coconut Haystacks as a child. It is such a simple recipe (3 ingredients!!), and one my Mum would often let me make all by myself. I even remember sometimes colouring my haystacks pink!
These little morsels are quick and fun to make, and perfect to eat plain, or even better drizzled with melted chocolate.
1 large egg
½ cup caster sugar (4 oz)
2½ cups desiccated coconut (½ lb)
Beat the egg and sugar together until thick and creamy. Mix in the coconut (the mixture can seem quite dry).
Using an egg cup, pack the mixture into the cup, then turn the mixture out onto a greased and lined baking tray.
Cook the haystacks in a moderate oven for 15 minutes. Makes approximately 12-15 haystacks.
Does anyone else remember making these?
