      This turned out really nice even though I used a yellow butter mix! I'm a coconut fiend too so to bump up the coconut I skipped the evaporated milk and used a can of Coco Lopez sweetened coconut milk that you find with the stuff for mixed drinks like Pina Coladas. Do not use the UN-sweetened coconut milk found in the Ethnic/Indian food--not going to do the same thing:) Made fresh sweetened whipped cream cut with the Cool Whip since I didn't have enough CW and had some cream to use up. Simple awesome recipe!
