Q: I bought a few cans of Coco Lopez Cream of Coconut to make cakes for a party. Turned out the guest of honor didn't care for coconut so I changed my plans. But now I'm left with a ton of this stuff.
I love it but I'm having a hard time coming up with ways to use it. All I can think of is the cake I originally planned and Pina Coladas. Has anyone used it in anything else.

Editor: Since cream of coconut is coconut milk that's been thickened and sweetened, I'm thinking you could substitute it in a lot of recipes calling for coconut milk. Just cut back on the sugar to compensate for the sweetness of the cream.
What about coconut ice cream? Or perhaps coconut popsicles?
• Quick Coconut Ice Cream with Roasted Cherries
• Coconut and Mango Rice Pudding Pops
• Quatro Leches Cake
Readers, any other ideas?
