"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."

"The fastest way to toast coconut is by using the broiler. It only takes a few seconds. Make sure to watch the coconut closely as it will burn. Hope this helps."

Whenever you see "trans fat free" on a label, you should look at the ingredient list. If you see "partially hydrogenated oil", that is trans fat. If you see "hydrogenated oil", that is most probably trans fat. If you see "fully hydrogenated oil", that is supposed to be very low in trans fats."

"If it were 'fully' hydrogenated, don't you think they would say so, to eliminate doubt? Yep. The fact that they don't speaks volumes."

"Made this over the weekend using 1/2 container of lite cool whip folded into pudding mixture instead of dream whip.Flavor was really good but if using cool whip cut down on the amount of milk as mine was a little runny but not to much it was still really good."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 3, 2010

"This tastes wonderful. However, I found it to be a little runny, so the next time I make it, I am reducing the amount of milk by 1/2 cup. If it still is a little runny, I will reduce the amount of milk by another 1/2 cup. Over all, everyone that the dessert loved it."

"Hydrogenated oils are not trans..only partially hydrogenated are. If an oil is fully hydrogentate, it is not "broken apart" which is what trans means."
