How to Make Easy Coconut Mousse Dessert
- For the crust: Reserve 2 tablespoons toasted coconut. Combine remaining coconut and melted butter in medium bowl. Press onto bottom and 1 inch sides of ungreased 9 inch springform pan. Refrigerate 15 minutes.
- For the filling: Combine pudding mix and milk in large bowl. Prepare according to pudding box directions. Gently stir whipped cream and sugar into pudding. Pour into coconut crust. Sprinkle top with remaining coconut. Refrigerate until set (at least 4 hours)
- Recipe Tip: To toast coconut, place coconut on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350F degrees, stirring occasionally until light golden brown 8-10 minutes. Remove from baking sheet. Cool completely.
- Recipe Tip: If you don't have a springform pan, use a 9 inch pie pan instead.
