Renee Schwebach of Dumont, Minnesota tucks a coconut filling into this moist chocolate Bundt cake. It's easy to assemble with convenience products, including a boxed cake mix, instant pudding mix and canned frosting.
"This dessert is out of this world," promises Iola Egle, McCook, Nebraska. Coconut, chocolate chips, marshmallows and pecans turn a boxed cake mix into a delectable treat. "All of your guests will agree that it's the best ever," she assures. "Enjoy it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream."
JUST like the outdoor kind, this frosty figure from our kitchen staff is sure to melt...only it'll be your mouth!
The cute-as can-be character is completely edible, from its chocolate candy buttons and coconut snowflakes to the licorice scarf and gumdrop nose.
What's more, you'll be able to build the confection without using a specially shaped pan. How? CT's cooks baked the cakes in ordinary ovenproof bowls, a muffin pan and custard cups.
So go ahead—just gather the ingredients and roll out a snowman today!
Unlike traditional fruitcake, with its dark color and dense texture, this fruitcake is light-colored and light-textured, flavored with orange, coconut, date, raisins and nuts. It was baked in a fluted cake pan to give it a different shape.—Linda Ault, Newberry, Indiana
You'll want to catch these cute critters before they climb up the waterspout one more time. The no-bake treats take advantage of coconut-covered snack cakes and other packaged items to make assembly a snap.
"I got this wonderful recipe from a cousin whose husband was Hawaiian," notes JoAnn Desmond from Madison Heights, Virginia. "I've changed it some to reduce the fat and calories, but it still tastes as rich as the original. It's very simple to make...and guests will love it. Enjoy!"
