This go to party food is a easy to make and a winner with the kids. I made it orange and white by request, but you can make it traditional pink and white.

The healthier, lactose free option replaces the icing sugar and condensed milk with coconut milk, vanilla essence and unrefined coconut sugar. 

It is great for Christmas, Halloween, cake stalls, parties or as a tasty treat.
