"The only change I made was to cut the recipe in- half. It is so good!!! This is a definite keeper for us. Be sure and give it a try."

"I used white chocolate sugar free instant pudding. Everything else I did exactly as the recipe states. My husband said the only thing wrong with the recipe was that it didn't make enough. He is ready for me to make more. My son usually doesn't like coconut but decided to try it and he loved the toasted coconut. This is definitely a recipe I will keep and make again and again."
