Diane's Story

This one came from needing a cake for church pot luck. Having left over nuts and coconut in the freezer. And I love Chocolate and coconut together. We all loved it. I hope you do too.

Now I need to figure out how to change the date on my camera. Looks like I'm still operating in 2008.. LOL

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
One of my fondest memories of childhood is of the yummy chocolates that I enjoyed with a bottle (yes, bottle!) of Coke everyday after school. Almond Joys were a favorite, and one bite of this wonderful cake transports me right back to the 60's. Love it!
