    2 Cans of Coconut Milk
    1/4 Cup of Water
    1/2 Cup Corn Starch
    1 Cinnamon Stick
    2/3 Cups of Granulated Sugar
    1 Tsp Vanilla Extract



1. Over low-medium heat combine 1 cup of Coconut milk, 1/4 cup of water and 1/2 cup of Cornstarch in a saucepan. Dissolve cornstarch.

2. Mix in the remaining ingredients(except vanilla extract), cinnamon stick, coconut milk, and sugar.

3. With the whisk continuously mix not allowing it to clump up.

4. Once it starts to boil the mixture will begin to thicken, add the vanilla.

5. You will know when it's done when the mixture becomes VERY thick. (remove cinnamon stick)

6. In a wet mold, pour in the mixture. Cover with seran wrap to avoid an "extra skin" touching the mixture. Allow to cool at room temperature, then refrigerate for 2 hours until cold or overnight.

7. After 2 hours the mixture should have set and become gelatin-like and able to be cut with a knife.

8. Cut into little squares and cover with ground cinnamon. Serve cold.
