  • 13.5 ounce can full-fat coconut milk
  • 4 egg yolks
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 7 ounces dark chocolate chopped
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon
  • Coconut whipped cream optional
  • Dried rose petals optional


  1. Whisk together coconut milk, egg yolks, salt and maple syrup in a large pot over medium low heat. Stir in vanilla seeds and pod.

  2. Whisk often and do not let mixture come to a boil.

  3. Cook for about 10 minutes or until mixture has thickened enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon. Remove from the heat and discard vanilla pod.

  4. Place the chocolate in a large bowl and gradually pour the mixture over it. Let sit for about 2 minutes to allow the chocolate to begin to melt, then whisk until smooth. Stir in the bourbon. Pour mixture into eight 4-ounce ramekins and chill for 2-3 hours.

  5. Top with coconut whipped cream and dried rose petals just before serving.
