  • Refrigerate cake 4 hours or until chilled. Frost with Cool Whip; sprinkle with coconut and chocolate.

How to Help Prevent the Parchment from Moving in Baking Pan

How to Toast the Coconut

Cook coconut in nonstick skillet on medium-low heat 4 to 6 min. or until golden brown, stirring constantly. Transfer to plate; cool completely.
