Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Diced dried fruit is convenient for recipes. The packaged mixture we used in this recipe contained golden raisins, pineapple, papaya, apricots and mango.
Coconut dries when it's exposed to air; seal an opened package of coconut in an airtight container or plastic bag and keep it refrigerated for up to six months.
Ingredient Substitution
Try coarsely chopped walnuts in place of the macadamia nuts.
