This recipe was so easy. I enjoyed making as well. The only thing I didn't really like is the fruit cocktail, so next time I'll replace it with Mandarin Oranges or more Cherry Pie filling. Everyone at my party loved it too!

This was a good recipe to take with you o the go. It feeds a ton of people and it is great! I didn't use the fruit cocktail but it was still good. I will make again. Thanks for the recipe!

I left out the fruit cocktail and the coconut, and everyone still loved it. I think that if I make it again I will add bananas. GREAT RECIPE!!! THANKS!!!!

loved it !!! I did it in a sheet cake and cut that into small squares. I also used mandarine oranges instead of fruit cocktail.
