Hedgehogs

Hedgehogs, yes, that is our new name for these delicious little morsels! This is the worlds easiest and nummyiest (sp!?!?) dessert! Cody is NOT A FAN OF COCONUT...however, this literally tastes like burnt sugar smothered with ice cream and chocolate, and who doesn't like that?! Wendy made these for us when we ate there one night, and we have had them multiple times since.

From: Wendy

1 bag coconut flakes
1/2 gallon ice cream
hot fudge

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spread 1/2 to 3/4 bag of coconut on a cookie sheet, thin. Bake coconut until a dark golden brown, stirring every 3 minutes. Make sure to check often to avoid burning. In my oven this takes about 15-20 minutes.

Roll vanilla ice cream into balls and then into baked coconut, the more coconut the better! Eat immediately with Mrs. Richardson's Hot Fudge, or simply freeze the ice cream balls with coconut for later!

thats a great idea! My motherinlaw does it with corn flakes, then fries it. Theyre not very good. This sounds WAY better (and probably the only way Brian would ever eat coconut too!)

Aaron and I have been making this ever since we discovered it at Outback about 5 years ago. It is a FAVORITE for us! So easy and delicious!!
