I have made this recipe several times now, and has been a hit each time! It is easy to throw together, so anytime I need to bring a desert this is my first choice.

This recipe was so easy. I enjoyed making as well. The only thing I didn't really like is the fruit cocktail, so next time I'll replace it with Mandarin Oranges or more Cherry Pie filling. Ev...

This was a good recipe to take with you o the go. It feeds a ton of people and it is great! I didn't use the fruit cocktail but it was still good. I will make again. Thanks for the recipe!

GREAT for parties

I left out the fruit cocktail and the coconut, and everyone still loved it. I think that if I make it again I will add bananas. GREAT RECIPE!!! THANKS!!!!

loved it !!! I did it in a sheet cake and cut that into small squares. I also used mandarine oranges instead of fruit cocktail.

Loved it! Didn't change a thing and will definately make again. Thanks for sharing.

Didn't care for this nor did my 15 year old son. I have had punch bowl cake before and loved it. Not sure why this recipie didn't work for me.
