It isn't people in Scandinavia making that kind of claims.

In Australia we usually make a sweet treat called White Christmas, and it's usually always a hit with children.

1/3 cup mixed dried fruit
1 cup powdered milk
1/2 cup icing sugar mixture
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1 1/2 cups puffed rice cereal
125g copha
90g white chocolate, roughly chopped

That sounds yummy, but the Copha (vegetable shortening) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia is going to be hard to find for most of us.

Oh I had no idea. It is actually available in all major super market in Australia. I read the wiki link and I had no idea it was only manufactured in Australia.
I think you should be able to substitute it with some sort of coconut oil or coconut fat.
