From before I can remember, there’s been a special drawer at Grandma Annie’s house. And when I say special, I mean, full of chocolate.
I imagine there was some kind of parental effort made when I was a little girl to conceal its existence, but that only lasted so long. Probably because it’s everyone’s favorite drawer and at some point, I’m hoping I was bright enough to notice that the adults in my life regularly made their way back to this happy little drawer…
That drawer has always been there for me for little pick-me-ups. What can I say, Grandma Annie has good taste in candy.
Well, it was a baby shower weekend and Grandma Annie proved, once again, that she has the sweet tooth’s back when she showed up with this Creamy Coconut Fruit Dip.
My husband is a lover of all things coconut, and he’s really brought me around to the flavor – that and dark chocolate. I’m not sure if I should thank him or blame him as I tell Jillian Michaels that I would need her a lot less without this maturing of my tastebuds.
Anyway. Back to the dip. It-like almost everything we share-is super simple. And you’re going to love it! (It’s also perfect for Easter or Mother’s Day meals!)
- 8 oz whipped cream cheese spread
- 1 can (15 oz) Cream of Coconut
- 16 oz Cool Whip
- Mix it up.
- Eat it up!
Well, here’s to grandmas with candy drawers and coconut fruit dip. They make the world a sweeter place!
Cream of coconut, cream cheese and cool whip! Must be as delicious as it is decadent!
Would this dip be okay for an outdoor picnic or does it need to stay refrigerated? I am going to a potluck and I’m thinking about using this a trifle layer with dark chocolate cake and strawberries. Thank you.
That sounds amazing! Let us know how it goes. It should be fine as long as it’s not out in the open sun for an extended time.
Just made it after a colleague brought this amazing dip to a brunch…
The CRITICAL STEP here is to soften the cream cheese FIRST, then BEAT it until it is completely smooth.
If you do not do this step, you will end up with cream cheese bits / chunks and the texture will not be smooth and fluffy.
LOVE. (other than the fact that I myself did not follow this critical step thinking I could just do some aftermath beating to smooth it out. No luck, but still super tasty)
