- 1 Box of Cake Mix - my suggestion Pillsbury Funfetti
- 1 pint of Vanilla Ice Cream
- 1 Tub of Vanilla Icing
- Package of melting white Chocolate
- Coconut Shreds
Follow the steps on the cake mix box to make the cake.
Break up the cake into crumbs by hand or with a fork
Mix in half a tub of icing with the cake crumbs until a dough consistency is formed then mold dough into 6 little cups.
Place 1 tablespoon of vanilla ice cream into each dough cup.
