REVIEW: recipe rating
The recipe is not hard to do. The next time I would add a lot more 10X sugar and coconut. With the way it is, you do not get much coconut flavor, it is too creamy, and it more or less tastes like a cheesecake covered in choc. (which isn't bad, just not what I was looking for!)

Not at all hard to make, but does take some time. However, it's a recipe I've been wanting for many years. Received high raves from many people for it. Great! Thanks!
