    In 4-quart saucepan, heat coconut milk, half-and-half, eggs, granulated sugar, cornstarch and salt to boiling over medium heat; beat constantly with whisk 10 to 15 minutes or until thick and bubbling. Remove from heat; stir in rum, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and 1 1/2 cups coconut flakes. Pour filling into cooled crust.

    Just before serving, make whipped cream topping: In large bowl, beat whipping cream with electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla and the powdered sugar; beat on medium speed until stiff peaks form. Spread whipped cream evenly over top of chilled bars. Sprinkle with toasted coconut flakes.
To toast coconut flakes, spread coconut flakes in even layer on small rimmed baking sheet. Toast in 375°F oven 6 to 7 minutes or until golden brown.
