    i can't find one, but i'm sure i've just mixed condensed milk, desicated coconut & icing sugar together before now! just looked, this site has some simple recipes. the ones i think i made are the coconut ladoo but i just mixed condensed milk with grated or desicated coconut and missed out the boiling bit! 10 Easy Diwali Indian Sweets Ladoo Recipes | Diwali 2012

    edited to say, i've just been reading some of the other recipes, and ghee is just clarified butter ( melt some butter and let it set, ghee is the clearish bit on the top! )

    last time i made a fruit salad with tropical fruit and spices such as cardimon. much easier! and less messy!

    I haven't tried this yet - its on the back of a pack I got in a sale earlier in the year(baker ross I think),
    550gms condensed milk
    200gms ground almonds
    1 teaspoon grated nutmeg
    1 kg icing sugar
    400gms desiccated conocnut
    110 gms chopped mixed nuts
    1 teaspoon ground cardaman
    saffron or yellow food colouring

    mis it all together, roll into small balls, sprinkle with nutmeg.
