Coconut Cream Dessert

Coconut Cream Dessert

This Coconut Cream Dessert has to be one of my family’s favorite desserts. Cool and creamy, it is perfect for serving on hot summer days. If you aren’t a huge fan of coconut, just skip the toasted coconut on top (like I did!).

    Looks like a dessert Grandpa would love….being he is a coconut lover. Sounds like a similar transformation of the chocolate delight we make.
