What Can I Do with Cream of Coconut?

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?

Coconut and Mango Rice Pudding Pops
Quatro Leches Cake

Readers, any other ideas?
