How to make it

  • To start lay the dessert shells in the bottom of a dish about 8 X 8" (if they lap over it will not hurt anything).
  • Put in the freezer while you prepare the custard layer.
  • (when cool, cover the shells with Chocolate (shell) sauce)
  • For Custard:
  • In a medium saucepan, combine half-and-half, eggs, sugar, flour and salt.
  • Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.
  • Add cream cheese. Stir and blend well!
  • Remove from heat, and stir in 1/2 cup of the coconut and the vanilla extract.
  • Mix well and allow to cool for about 10 minutes.
  • when cooled slightly:
  • Put 1 layer of the custard over the shells and chocolate.
  • Put a thin layer of macadamia nuts
  • Now put whipped topping, and coconut.
  • Just keep going until all gone.
  • Top with more whipped topping and coconut.. a little chocolate shell or chocolate curls.You also may dust with cocoa powder if desired.
  • To toast coconut, spread it in an ungreased pan and bake in a 350 degree F oven for 5 to 7 minutes, or until golden brown, stirring occasionally.
  • ( burns easily!)
  • Chill 2 to 4 hours, or until firm.

    Angel..That dessert was just 'off the top of my head' and literally what we had in the house. JB said it was as good
    as any dessert he had EVER eaten..(It was anorther of my 'accidents' that turned out good)!! :()Thank you so so much..LOL, you gotta try it..KEEP the custard but just switch it like you want.
    also would be good without the chocolate and with FRUIT!!
