Coconut Blondie Cheesecake Recipe

So you know how whenever something’s missing, your mom is always the on who finds it. It never seems to fail. Sometimes I think I need to be a mom just so that I can actually find something for once.

Last night, the hubs and I sat down to eat dinner and watch a little tv. We were going to watch something on our apple tv, but couldn’t find the little remote. We’ve never had trouble with it before. It’s always hanging out with our other two remotes. We knew we’d just seen it. But we couldn’t find it.

We got up and walked around the whole living room, pulling up couch cushions, looking underneath pillows and everything we could think of. We started searching the kitchen and our offices, in case it’d made it’s way into another room.

Nothing.

Finally we gave up and decided to watch something that’d been DVRed. We had that remote. 🙂 Then, in the middle of eating, the hubs grabs his napkin and there underneath it, in the one place we didn’t look, was the remote.

I’m pretty sure that if my mom had been there, she’d have found it without having to pull up all the couch cushions. Moms just have a way of doing that. 🙂

It was one of those moments that we totally just laughed at ourselves.

However, this cheesecake is no laughing matter. No, it’s an eating matter. One you won’t want to miss out on. With or without the Easter decor on top, this cheesecake needs to be made. It’s so coconuty! I’m in love.

Though I decided it’d be fun to deck it out for Easter, that’s entirely optional. I wanted to use some Peeps. The hubs loves Peeps – he eats them frozen. And eggs, they’re so Easter-y. So I decided that Mr. and Mrs. Peep needed to get together and have some eggs.

And boy did they get busy. Not one, not two, but THREE nests worth of eggs. My goodness, Mr. and Mrs. Peep. 🙂

How to Make This Tasty Coconut Cake

I loved how easy it was to put together using the candies. The main things you need for the top are toasted coconut, some whipped cream (I used Cool Whip), a couple Peeps and some eggs. I used malted eggs, because I love them, but you could use jelly beans or whatever egg-shaped candy you prefer.

I piped the nests using the whipped cream and made three circles. I then covered the nests and the top of the cheesecake with the toasted coconut. I left some space in the back of the three nests for Mr. and Mrs. Peep, where I added them and then added the eggs. Easy peasy! And so cute!

And the cheesecake itself is easy to make as well. The brownie is made and cooled, then the no bake cheesecake is added on top and allowed to firm in the refrigerator. There’s coconut in both the blondie and the cheesecake, making it double the awesome.

This cheesecake definitely needs to make an appearance on your table – either with Mr. and Mrs. Peep for Easter, or without them another time. You won’t regret it.

    I made this for our Easter dinner dessert, to rave reviews!! My husband enjoyed the leftovers for the next 2 days and kept exclaiming over it:) This is definitely what my family calls, “a keeper”!!

  2. Jessica @ Sweet Menu

    This is the sweetest Easter cake I have EVER seen! I just love it. On another note, we always loose that Apple TV remote, its so small!

  3. Dorothy+@+Crazy+for+Crust

    I’m kind of shocked there’s no “Find my remote” on our iPhones, right?? I love this cheesecake SO MUCH!

    Oh, I think your website needs to know daylight savings happened. I just happened to check the time, and it says 6:51 am when it’s actually 5:51 am, and yes, AM. (What am I doing this early up, you ask? Reading your blog, I say.)

    Ooh blondies!!! (I still giggle like a clever 5-year-old whenever I hear or read that.) I need to tell you that I’m officially traumatized and can never look at birds with innocence EVER AGAIN. Obviously the eggs came from somewhere-how come I never thought of that? (Oh, my brain howls a cry of dismay.) Also the word peeps-I have no clue what that is, but you can bet your….cheesecake, that I’ll never use it in any sort of conversation. 😀 Anyhow, I love you so much!!!! For making recipes and sharing them!!! My entire family knows you now, after all that shouting and excited yelling I do whenever you update!! 😀 Thanks so much, Lindsay, and all the best of luck to your life!!!

    I love the blondie bottom on this cheesecake! It sounds so good with the coconut. And the peeps on top are adorable. I love how this cake screams Easter/spring!

  7. Mir

    Definitely adorable with the two Peeps. It looks like a little wedding cake, but better! Because honestly, nothing is better than cookie and cheesecake.
