Coconut  Jelly Hearts
For the colour  layer
Ingredients
1 pandan leaf knotted 
1 tbsp agar agar powde
2 1/2 cups water
200 grams  white sugar
Colour of your choice
For the coconut  layer
Ingredients
1 tbsp agar agar powder
1 cup water
2 cups coconut cream
1/2 cup condensed milk
1 pandan leaf knotted
1 Pinch salt
Method
To make the colour layer place the agar agar powder and water in a small  pot and heat until agar agar is completely dissolved. Add the sugar and the pandan leaf and cook until dissolved, do not boil. Take the pandan leaf out. To make the colour layer of your choice  separate the sugar syrup in to different bowls or as many bowls you want to add colours of your choice. Keep the bowls in a tray of hot water as the sugar syrup should not cool completely.  Next, make the coconut  layer. Place the agar agar powder in a small pot and cook until the agar agar has completely dissolved. Add the condensed milk, coconut cream, pandan leaves and salt stir till all the ingredients have incorporated well. Strain out the liquid  and place the mixture in a small bowl sitting in a bowl of hot water. You do not want to let the mixture cool off. While the two batches of layers are still warm, take heart shape silicon mould and  place 2 tablespoons of the coconut cream layer in the silicon mould. Let the layer almost set, then place 2 tablespoons of the colour sugar syrup layer in the cups. Repeat this process until all cups are full.  Let the jellies set completely. To serve, remove the jellies from the mould and enjoy.
