Monthly Mystery Ingredient Challenge: Coconut!

If you know me, you know I love coconut. That’s why I chose COCONUT as the May Mystery Ingredient. Well, folks, it’s that time, the winners have been chosen.

Surprisingly there were only a few entries, but that just makes my job easier. With only three entries, guess what? I get to name the TOP THREE winners. This is the KrAzY kItChEN after all.

Coming in first, the lovely Melissa of Frugal Creativity with a recipe after my own heart. Lucky for Melissa, one of the many things I miss about our Mexican vacation was walking barefoot down the beach with a few pesos in my swim trunks to the ice cream store. There, they sold The Best Toasted Coconut Ice Cream Ever. I can only hope that Melissa’s recipe will compare. Because I am hopeful, Melissa wins the top spot with her Toasted Coconut Ice Cream!

1st Place Winner:

Our second place winner is Charlene of Secrets of a Southern Kitchen, with Quick and Easy Coconut Macaroons. These chewy flavorful cookies are another favorite of mine, I love them but rarely make them. I have a feeling that is about to change with Charlene’s recipe!

2nd Place Winner:

And finally, we have Debbi of Debbi Does Dinner with her Almond Joy Amish Friendship Bread. Almonds, chocolate AND coconut? How can you go wrong with this one. I do have an Amish bread starter floating around the freezer somewhere, so this is definitely on my list:

3rd Place Winner:

Thank you all for playing along, and stay tuned for the next
Monthly Mystery Ingredient Challenge!
Who knows what it will be??
Don’t forget to visit me at The Bad Girl’s Kitchen

And I’ll see you back here next week for the regularly scheduled Try a New Recipe!

Oh my. Those all look delicious! That friendship bread is making me drool. How about sticking some of the ice cream between the macaroons and making a coconut ice cream sandwich? Mmmm.
