"My mom actually made this, and I loved it! We have tried quite a few new desserts this year and so far this has been the best. The coconut is my favorite part, and the rest of my family was really impressed with how well the orange went with the whole thing. Very easy to make too. We decided to make this a new addition to our Thanksgiving menu every year!"
