Default Vegan sweetened condensed milk substitute

One of my daughter's favorite 'cookies' are the apricot, coconut,
walnut balls that are just mixed with sweetened condensed milk.

So I went looking for some substitutes. Many of them were real
time consuming or complicated so I used what I learned and came up
with this. I don't know how this will cook up, but raw it was
actually an improvement in these no-bake cookies.

1 can Coconut Cream
1/2 cup Agave nectar syrup

simmer to 242F on a candy thermometer.
xxxxx

It is the perfect 'sweet goo' to tie 4 cups each of shredded coconut &
chopped apricots, and 2 cups of chopped walnuts together.

I used 14oz of the goo. it made a bit more than that, but I used a
1/2 cup or so to make some vegan caramel last night. [that worked
well, too. I just cooked it some more in a saute pan until it looked
right.]
