Modern Coconut Tartufo with Kahlua

New executive Chef Darrell J. O'Neill at Intercontinental Kuala Lumpur shares his recipe for Modern Coconut Tartufo with Kahlua with The Yum List. This sweet concoction with Malibu, rum and Kahlua  is just as much a cocktail as it is a dessert. Fresh mango cubes are topped with coconut ice cream and drizzled with Malibu Sabayon before being crowned with a chocolate sheet and doused with the liquor espresso mix.
