  • chevron_rightMake sure to use full-fat coconut milk for the creamiest custard.
  • chevron_rightBe careful not to overcook the custards - they should be set but still slightly jiggly in the center.
  • chevron_rightIf you don't have a kitchen torch, you can broil the custards in the oven for a few minutes to caramelize the sugar.
