This is the cutest and easiest recipe to make for Christmas. Chocolate wafers and Cool Whip and Coconut are the main ingredients. My grand kids always liked this one. It's so easy they could actually help. Hope you will enjoy. From Cookbook "Simple Desserts Made Special with Cool Whip"
I really wanted to post a picture of these on here for you but my scanner isn't working again, so if I make a batch, I will post a picture or you can if you make them before me.
