Coconut Choc Kisses 1

coffee cup

Boy likes nothing  – coffee break play by Lita Doolan as a girl tries to leave hint about her Valentines day present

Girl – I don’t know why I come here.  It’s horrible and it smells again

Boy – It’s your make up

Girl – No It’s the cake

Boy – It’s all over your face

Girl – So is the dessert.  Is that why you’re not having any?

Boy – I work here.  They don’t pay us to eat

Girl – I’m taking dessert away.  Like a present.  Could you wrap it please?

Boy – Just trying to push your luck again?  You’re out of here

Girl – But you owe me a present.  It’s what I came for. At least give that to me

Boy – Doing what you want you always do. That’s your present.  Now leave me alone.

Girl – You can leave my present behind the desk for me

Boy – No.  There it is.  There.  Eat it then beat it.

Girl – At least I tried.  Diamonds are forever but cake tastes better. I guess I should be pleased you’ve put it on a plate.

Boy – You got yours and you like it so now I will have a Bugatti

Girl – A model one?

Boy – As long as it is made of gold

Girl – Or painted gold?

Boy – Solid gold

Girl – Solid gold plated?

Boy – Just solid

Girl – Too heavy for me to carry home after I’ve been to the food bank pantry and I’m feeling weak today.  Hey aren’t you the first aider around here?

Boy – Yes. I do it for extra money.

Girl – Then go and get me more cake before I pass out.

Boy – You’re making a fuss and turning customers away. Do you ever do subtle?

Girl – No. Get me one of those chandeliers hanging from the ceiling in a bag to go

Boy – Don’t you think they would miss it?

Girl – They are sparkling.  They are perfect for my needs.  They are shiny.

Boy – They look like your make up today – you look like a cannon ball

Girl – Then fire me bullet boy.

Boy – I hate this job.  I never did like this job.  I’m firing myself any way

Follow the easy steps

  1. Combine together the condensed milk and icing sugar. Stir in the coconut and divide between two bowls. Colour one half of the mixture pink by adding a drop of natural food colouring and mix well.
