Fill mini loaf pans or cupcake tins, scatter coconut over top, and bake for 20 minutes. Let cool and serve with a drizzle of the Bourbon Caramel Sauce.

Mix the cream, sugar, butter and honey in a heavy-duty 6-quart stainless steel pot. Bring to a boil and cook for 12 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla and bourbon.
