Tres Leche Cake

With just a few simple ingredients, jazz up a boxed, yellow cake mix.  This "three" milks" cake is over-the-top good.  It's got a lot of calories, but if you're going to be bad don't you want it to be good?! ; )

1 box yellow cake mix
1 small can Coco Lopez
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 small container cool whip or fresh sweetened whipped cream
shredded coconut for topping, I like the unsweetened variety

Bake cake according to directions.  When done, poke holes all over with a fork or toothpick.  Do not cool the cake.  Pour one can of sweetened condensed milk and let absorb into the cake.  Pour Coco Lopez on cake and let absorb.

Refrigerate several hours or overnight if you can stand the wait.  Top with whipped cream and shredded coconut before serving.  I use unsweetened coconut since the cake itself is ultra sweet.
