1(3.4 ounce) box of instant coconut cream pudding mix
2-3tablespoonsof coconut rum
optional: a drop of pink food coloring
assorted fruit for dipping!
Combine all ingredients in a giant bowl and mix, mix, mix! You can use an electric mixer if you prefer to make it more creamy. My mom does not measure out the Cool Whip and uses anywhere from 8-16 ounces, so it truly just depends on your preference. There may be a bit of extra texture in the dip (aside from the coconut) due to the instant pudding – it will dissolve as it sits.
You can obviously leave out the rum if serving this to children. My mom never did and we turned out fine. (That’s subjective.)
This needs to be refrigerated but thanks to the Cool Whip, can sustain heat and room temperatures for hours on end at a party. Ew gross. And amazing.
