Thai Custard Agar Dessert

My beautiful Bride decided to make this quick dessert for a potluck end-of-program party she recently attended. Of course, making this yourself from fresh ingredients will yield a much better and tastier result, but, if you are strapped for time, this works well. This is an egg custard, with agar-agar, that is similar to Portuguese versions (which don't use agar-agar, nor coconut cream). The ingredients are sugar, coconut cream powder, non-dairy cream powder, whole egg powder, agar-agar and artificial flavours. Essentially, you add water, bring to a boil, then pour into little containers (she used silicon muffin cups) and let set.

The taste? Not bad, though I would like to try freshly made ones.
