The Custard Files: Coconut Caramel

There was a lot of anticipation for this flavor. Both Vanessa and I LOVE coconut and caramel-y things.  Vanessa had memories of a dessert at a DC tex mex restaurant called “cajeta” that was a coconut caramel-y treat and she was hoping that the custard would replicate that.  I just can’t ever get enough coconut in my life, so I was excited.

We split a milkshake and in an effort to replicate the cajeta we created a concrete of the custard with walnuts (we would have preferred pecans), caramel, and coconut.  The milkshake didn’t pack as much of a coconut-y punch as we would have liked, and the caramel was a bit too sweet. The concrete also could have used more coconut. It was good– but not good enough. It could have used more coconut flakes and maybe a saltier caramel. The bites of pure custard in the concrete however, were pretty awesome, so we thing we should have gone with custard over a milkshake this time.
