  1. I made this and took it to work with a fruit tray. Oh my goodness, I have never heard such squealing. This is "to die for" scrumptious. Thanks for posting this. I will definitely make it again.
  2. I agree with NurseDi. This is an absolutely fabulous dip. The combination of the coconut and rum extracts is what takes this dip over the top!! Thanks Stewie, for sharing this dip. :-)
  3. Dear Finicky, It is a good recipe. Don't feel bad about the recipe. If I make this in the summer at a swimming party or summer birthday party it is gone in nothing flat. Men , women and kids are gobbling it up. Come winter it just sits there. It took me a while to realize the season was a factor in whether or not it was eaten. My recipe calls for one yogurt, and a small cool whip. I use Vanilla, coconut or rum or almond extract and only 1/2 t of flavorings and taste. I don't always use more, sometimes I do. But I always use 3 flavorings. I make this 2 ways: 1 as sugar free as possible, the other full sugar....a diabetic in the group and WW girls. Good luck.
  4. Yum! I used regular pudding, not sugar fee, delicious!
  5. This was a hit at DS's confirmation reception. Everyone asked for the recipe. We made a second batch and layered it with pound cake and fruit to create a yummy trifle. Thanks for a great recipe Stewie!


  1. I used sour cream in place of the yogurt and coconut cream pudding mix.
  2. Yummy! I'll be making this again for my work potluck. You have a lot of room to play with this recipe. I forgot to buy vanilla pudding, so I used pistachio instead. I also used vanilla extract instead of rum. My fiancee ate the dip with a spoon. I was confused about the (1 ounce) package sugar-free vanilla pudding mix (4 serving size), so I used the whole 4oz package and it turned out fine.
  3. This was really really excellent. Instead of vanilla pudding I used cheesecake because I was out of vanilla and figured cheesecake was neutral enough. I used all fat free products and yet it tasted so decadent. Served it with apples, bannanas, and apricots. And when I got the late night munchies I ate it with pretzel sticks. Thanks so much! This one is fabulous.


I now live in southeast Michigan, but have lived overseas a couple of times (in the South Pacific, and in Asia). My family loves to try new foods and has very few dislikes so I am lucky. We love to travel (lately in Europe and the Caribbean) and I have collected recipes and spices wherever we go.
