"My family enjoyed this, however, I agree that it would be easier to cook in the oven. My crockpot is the "old" kind and the mix completely fill the pot and made it difficult to stir every 30 min."

"Great taste. I've already made it twice but the second time I baked in the oven at 250 for an hour stirring every 15 min. and adding the coconut half way through. It's faster and easier then using the crock pot."
