2. In a large, chilled bowl combine the cream, cream of coconut and vanilla. Using a hand-held electric mixer, beat the mixture until soft peaks begin to form.
3. Using a large rubber spatula, fold one third of the whipped cream mixture into the chocolate mixture to lighten it. Fold in the remaining cream mixture.
