"Sweet n Tart Delight! First batch I followed the recipe and it was GREAT! 2nd batch I switched to pecans and stirred in about 2 tbsp shredded coconut. It was a most delicious variation! I like the lower fat/ calorie aspects of this recipe. The blend of sweet and tart is just plain yummie! I'm a guy with limited cooking experience and this was easy enough that I could do it! Thanks Taste of Home!"
