As always, another wonderful recipe from Chef Inez! I could only find Duncan Hines French Vanilla and it turned out great, the mixture was thick and gooey so I had no idea if I was doing this right, but it turned out great. I think I prefer it w/o the melted chocolate...not as sweet. I just love the taste of coconut and that combined w/the vanilla is oh so YUMMY! I'm posting a pic, hope this is what your's look like lol
Step 11 said it all. "Cool". I made this for guests at a Barbie, and "Whooshka" all gone in sixty seconds. I've got to make more so I can get my fair share next time. Simply brilliant! Try 'em you'll like 'em.
If you like coconut , this is as good as it gets !
