This is a quick and easy crowd pleaser. Do not use ingredients on the cake mix box. This is a double recipe, using two (9 x 13 inch) baking pans. Cut each pan in 3 rows x 6 rows to serve 18 per pan, or a total of 36.
Set out cream cheese and whipped topping to come to soften to make them easy to spread. Spread coconut on a baking sheet and put under broiler until golden brown. DO NOT WALK AWAY. Set aside.
