Everyone went crazy for this dessert. It was incredible!!! WOW! Instead of nuts in the crust I added toasted coconut to it. It was wonderful. I also left the nuts off the top. Will definitely make again!
this is now one of my dh favorites i will be making this quite often
TEN STARS all the way! Really, really delicious dessert! I love coconut too homegirl...thanks for posting one of the best desserts EVER!
This was SUPER delicious! I am not a fan of coconut, but I was looking for a "dream" dessert like this for chocolate pudding. I made it the same using chocolate cook-n-serve pudding and sprinkled sifted cocoa powder over the top instead of the coconut and pecans. It was so delicious I could have eaten the whole 9x13 myself (I didn't!). The recipe is easy to make and the hardest thing was waiting for the crust and pudding to cool. I made it as a trial run for my soon-to-be-sister-in-law's bridal shower. It was such a hit, it's on the menu! I'm making it again in a few days for the shower!! Thanks for the great recipe!
I made this for company about a week ago. There were six of us and what was left of the dessert, my husband finished off by himself over the next two days. He told me it was his new "most favorite dessert". Tonight, while I was writing out a store list, he asked me to get the ingredients to make the coconut dream dessert again. Now, I am trying to stay away from desserts, so I guess he plans on eating the entire 9x12 pan himself. Needless to say, you have a big 5 star winner dessert at our house.
I love these kinds of deserts, cool, creamy and so easy to make ahead, I love coconut too! I have a recipe like this useing pistachio pudding, so I knew I woud love it and I did! Thanks.
