Coconut Fruit Dip

I love all things coconut and this fruit dip is absolutely no exception.  Plus this recipe gave me a huge Aha moment.  I have have seen recipes that call for something called Cream of Coconut, but I have looked in almost every grocery store to find it and I could only find Coconut Milk.  So, after 2 years of looking for the elusive Cream of Coconut, some kind blogger informed me that you find it over the by margarita mix and other mixers.  I guess I never thought to look over there, but now I know and I am most excited. 

Coconut Fruit Dip
8 ounces cream cheese
1 15 ounce can cream of coconut (remember, find this by the alcohol mixers)
8 ounces cool whip

Whip cream cheese with cream of coconut until all lumps are gone (I used my kitchen aid with the paddle attachement).  Fold in the cool whip. 

Serve with fruit or graham crackers.
