2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons half-and-half
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup flaked coconut
6 slices bread (your favorite for toasting)
Melt butter in a small saucepan. Remove from heat and add sugar, half-and-half, vanilla extract and coconut. Mix well.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Toast bread on one side. Spread coconut mixture on untoasted side. Broil until topping is lightly browned - about 3 minutes.
