Tasty-- it didn't state if the coconut should be sweetened or not, so I used sweetened. When getting ready to add the cashews and coconut, I just couldn't add 2 cups of cashews-- it would have been way too much. I used 1 cup cashews and 1/3 cup coconut-- and will use just 1/4 cup coconut next time. The family ate it and enjoyed it. (the "3/4 cube of butter" in the directions threw me off- and I used 3/4 of a stick-- which is not 2 tbls. I was going to rate it lower for having too much butter, but realized my error. 2 tbls of butter would be just right)
