Coconut Cream Mini Frozen Desserts with White Chocolate Magic Shell - super easy treat for coconut fans!
Hot summer days are upon us so it's time to give our ovens a little break. Frozen and no-bake desserts will be in the spot light for a while. But who complains? Just look at these beauties!
And when it comes to frozen desserts, only creamy will do. Creamy, sweet and perfectly chilled.
These mini frozen desserts pop right out from the pan and can be served right away or stored in the freezer until ready to serve.
I made these frozen babies with just few easy ingredients: pudding mix, milk, whipped topping (like COOL Whip), coconut, chopped white chocolate and rum extract. You can swap the coconut and white chocolate for dark chocolate and graham cracker crumbs or other add-ons like frozen fruit.
For the crust you can use the traditional graham cracker crumbs and butter but I didn't have these on hand. Instead I used rolled oats, slivered almonds and coconut. Then added melted coconut oil and combined it all into a perfectly delicious crust. Yum!
And because it's a frozen dessert, I thought that homemade magic shell would be the perfect topping. Magic shell that is made with two ingredients: chocolate and coconut oil. I added coconut to complement the mini cakes.
It's super fun to dig into these and break the shell! My kiddos love to eat the shell first and then the cakes. 🙂
Hi. Where can I find this recipe??
Anna, wow! These little frozen desserts look adorable and delicious. I need more no-bake desserts in my life - last summer I was dying from all the baking I was doing in the scorching heat (not that it stopped me!). I can imagine how cool and creamy these taste.

These mini desserts are so cute! And I love that they are no bake - it has been too hot to turn on the oven lately!
I love these, Anna! Definitely need to make these for my next summer get-together. They're gorgeous and look so light, cold and scrumptious!

Oh holy night! I am hearing the angels sings because this dessert is just sooooo heavenly and fluffy and everything-nice! I love coconuts, so this is just right up my alley! Smack (I am smacking my lips and fingers in a gesture that says 'delicious!' the way Italians do...) Bellissima! LOL!
oh dear lord! I am drooling here. Those are to die for, some perfect bite and so creamy. Love the last photo.
Hi Donna! Thank you so much for your question. You can easily use whipping cream. I suggest starting with a 1/2 c of unwhipped cream as it will double in size. The whip it and gently fold it in. I have never whipped coconut milk so I can't say how much you would need... Let me know how it goes! Have fun!
Wow! Such petite pretty dessert! Love anything coconut! Pinned it!
Thank you so much!
Love the sound of the crust! The coconut oil, almonds, coconut, and oats combo is perfect!
It is really delicious! Thanks, Jessica!
