      1. Combine maple syrup and brown sugar in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Bring to a boil and cook until the candy thermometer reaches 235º.
      2. Once mixture reaches 235º remove from heat and stir in butter, chipotle powder and salt. Once butter is melted, add coconut milk and stir just to incorporate.
