Coconut Mousse

Walt Disney World Shopping Village

Yum yum yum! This was such a yummy dessert. I typically only fall in love with desserts that contain chocolate, but this was was amazing.  It takes a little bit of time because the different stages have to cool before it can be mixed, but it's worth the effort. 5 mickeys means a recipe!

1 t unflavored gelatin
1/2 c cold water
1/3 cup sugar
2 T powdered milk
1/8 t salt
1 c whipped topping or heavy cream
3/4 t valnilla extract
1 drop yellow food coloring
2/3 cup shredded coconut

Soak gelatin in 1/4 c of the cold water for 2 min. Place container of gelatin in a pan of hot water and heat until gelatin dissolves. Cool to lukewarm.
In mixer bowl, combine sugar, powdered milk, remaining 1/4 c water, salt, whipped topping or heavy cream, vanilla and food coloring. Beat until thick. Slowly beat in gelatin. Fold in coconut. Chill until firm.
