INGREDIENTS

Nutrition
  • 1
    (16 ounce) container whipped topping (thawed according to package directions)
  • 14 - 12
    cup of chopped walnuts
  • 14 - 12
  • 14 - 12
    cup flaked coconut or 1/4-1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 2 -6
    ounces chocolate syrup, to taste

DIRECTIONS

  • Once your whipped topping is thawed, (don't try to rush the thawing process, it doesn't work lol) transfer into a mixing bowl that leaves you room to work in for mixing.
  • Drizzle the chocolate syrup (easiest straight from the bottle) until it reaches your desired color and flavor (2-4 oz. was my best guess).
  • Add the rest of your ingredients.
  • Mix until everything is incorporated, being careful to not over mix and break down the whipped topping.
  • Chill in refrigerator (covered) until you're ready for it, (over night, if possible).
  • Transfer into an appropriate bowl (I like glass) to showcase it's beauty.
  • Obviously, you can vary by using extra rich whipped topping, or low fat, or low sugar, whatever your prefer. Or no nuts, or no coconut. Also, it can be easily doubled or tripled (or whatever) to suit your occasion, but a little goes a long way, so it serves many. Total prep time does not include thawing time for whipped topping, or chill time in refrigerator until use. I have not tried making this with homemade whipped cream, but I'm sure it would be wonderful, (if you just feel too guilty keeping it simple). I'll be interested to see what variations people come up with on this one, as I'm sure there are endless adaptations to suit anyone or any occasion. But this basic recipe will be one you'll be glad to have.
