I use them to decorate fairy cakes - glacé icing, cherry, roll in coconut

A few recipes here, I've made the magic coconut cake and it's lovely.
Also Delia has a nice coconut cake recipe.
Also -- Stir some into curries, add some to a caribbean style beans and rice dish.

Is it sweetened? If not it can be toasted and used in curries. Not a good cook myself, just eaten it in dishes. I was trying to find a recipe example and came up with this for Goan coconut chicken curry.
Intriguing 4th ingredient "6 (about 650g) chicken lovely legs". Maybe it's a brand name, there are a couple of others.

Oooh they all sound delicious, will definitely give a few of them a go over Christmas. Yes it's unsweetened, didn't think to add to curries.

How much would you say is safe, well appropriate for my 2 year old? A teaspoon in his porridge be too much?

Omit the rum for a teetotal version of these rum balls (use three teaspoons of rum essence instead).

You can make coconut milk from it by blitzing in boiling water, steeping it and straining the bits out.
