This is a great recipe to throw together. I had some left over coconut from easter in the freezer and it was just enough. Made this as a last minute dessert last night and it was terrific. I will make this again, was nice and sweet! Thanks for sharing. ~V

This is extremely addictive lol! I had fresh shaved coconut in my freezer just waiting to use up, not sure if I used 4 cups I really did not measure, I just eye-balled it! this is actually an easy recipe, and you need to have a sweet tooth for this, it is very sweet, great recipe de Roche!...Kitten :)
