  • 1 14 oz package refrigerated pie crusts or 2 homemade 9 inch pie crusts
  • 1 15 oz can coconut-pecan icing
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 2 large egg yolks lightly beaten
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 4 oz German Chocolate chopped and divided
  • whipped topping


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 24 cup mini muffin tin with baking spray.
  • Warm to room temperature for 15 minutes while you prepare the filling.
  • Meanwhile, in a heavy bottomed saucepan over medium heat, stir together coconut pecan icing, heavy cream and lightly beaten egg yolks. Stir until combined.
  • Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Lower to medium-low and continue to simmer for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Dissolve 1 Tbsp cornstarch in 2 Tbsp water until dissolved. Stir into the filling. Continue to cook for an additional 2 minutes, until thickened then remove from the heat.
  • Stir 3 oz chopped chocolate into the filling. Stir until completely melted. Set aside. Reserve the remaining chopped chocolate for garnishing.
  • Roll pie crusts onto a lightly floured surface. Gently stretch the pie crust, smoothing out the edges.
  • Using a 3 inch fluted cookie cutter, cut each crust into 12 rounds. Re-rolling scrap pieces of dough as needed.
  • Press the dough rounds firmly onto the sides and bottom of the mini muffin cups.
  • Divide the filling evenly between the shells.
  • Place into the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until set. Cool to room temperature on a baking rack.
  • Place a dollop of whipped topping into the center of each tartlet. Sprinkle with the remaining chopped German Chocolate before serving.
