Enjoy a rich combination of coconut and rose, the quintessential Indian festive flavors with this simple fudge. Uses easily available ingredients and ideal for gifting as well. Usually during Diwali week, I am always rushing with preparations managing all the cleaning, cooking special dishes and office work so I always prefer quick and easy recipes without compromising the festive spirit. This is one such recipe and my family’s favorite.

Setting time: 2-3 hours
Desiccated coconut 350 gms
1 Condensed Milk tin-400gms

- Put the sugar and condensed milk in a mixing bowl and mix until combined.
- Add the desiccated coconut along with rose water and keep mixing until the mixture is well combined.
