Make It

ADD boiling water to gelatin mix in large bowl; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Stir in cold water. Add fruit cocktail; mix well. Refrigerate 1-1/4 hours or until slightly thickened (consistency of unbeaten egg whites).

MIX graham crumbs, coconut, butter and 1/4 cup sugar; press onto bottom of 13x9-inch pan. Refrigerate until ready to use.

BEAT cream cheese, remaining sugar and milk in large bowl with whisk until blended. Gently stir in 2 cups COOL WHIP and pineapple. Spread evenly over crust. Spoon gelatin mixture over cream cheese layer. Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm. Serve topped with remaining COOL WHIP.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Size Wise
Tropical flavors make this simple dessert ideal for a summer party. This dessert will serve a crowd of 20.
How to Toast Coconut
Heat oven to 350°F. Spread coconut into thin layer in shallow baking pan. Bake 7 to 12 min. or until lightly toasted, stirring occasionally.
Food Facts
Do not use fresh or frozen pineapple, kiwi, gingerroot, papaya, figs or guava since enzymes in these fruits prevent the gelatin from setting.
