We bet you’ve never had coconut cream quite like this before. This cool and creamy coconut dessert will totally awe your guests when you serve it. From the crunchy pecan crust to the velvety cream cheese and pudding filling, it’s all around delicious. And it’s also pretty much the easiest dessert you can whip up for a party.
We love layered desserts like this because of how they’re able to combine so many wonderful flavors. And we also love how it’s so easy to slice them into squares to hand out to guests or family members. It’s a no-fuss dessert that’s full of flavor, which is just the kind of sweet treat we’re all about.
