It’s been said by some people that I give desserts away to, that this is one of the best one’s I’ve made… until the next one, but this one is pretty awesome.  No bake, fast and make ahead!  It doesn’t get any better than that!

I started out with coconut butter cookies, that I crushed up with some melted butter.

Pop the crumbs in the bottom of jars. Then I made the filling, coconut cream pudding mix, milk, toasted coconut, and cool whip

and then, you layer the pudding, some more toasted coconut, pudding, toasted coconut, then top off with homemade whip cream, refrigerate and serve.

    This looks delicious. Combining my favorite things: whipped cream and coconut… I’m going to make these and hide them in the back of the fridge so the kids can’t get to them! Pinning this for sure!
