It's like eating a Mounds Bar in the form of a cake.

You must take this to a gathering or you will eat the whole darn thing yourself!

coconut, flaked
1 c
pecans, in pieces
1/4 c

8 oz.

1 - 16oz. box

This has got all my favorite stuff in it. I love chocolate, coconut, cream cheese and pecans. I can not wait to try this going to this weekend with my extended family for I will not eat the whole thing by myself.
