Wow--what a great yet simple dessert! For my personal taste it was a bit too sweet (maybe I'll try cutting a little of the condensed milk or brown sugar next time) and I put only half a cup of coconut, but I brought it to church and everyone loved it :)
These are so good! Very moist and very sweet! They were a breeze to prepare and everyone loved them.
