I told my coconut-loving husband this recipe was created to resemble the Mounds candy bar…with a shortbread crust. He loves Almond Joy and Mounds so I figured this one would be a success. 🙂
Not only was it a success, but he says it is his “All Time Favorite” of all of the recipes we have baked on this baking adventure! I was like, “what?…over all of them?”. He said, “I just can’t think of anything else while I am eating this…it is that good!” What a recommendation haha!
I got similar reactions from everyone who tried this one. They absolutely loved it…every part of it. “The tart was soooooo good!!!! I loved it!!! Every part of it was delicious!”
What I liked, being the non-coconut lover, was that it was a pretty easy recipe to get that kind of reaction. We have made this crust so many times, that is easy and then the coconut pastry cream was pretty easy as well. Top with chocolate ganache…chill and you are ready to go.
Seeing as this has been called an “All Time Favorite”, I am sure I will be making this one again! This is definitely a keeper!
