chocolate-coconut tart

Our first BCM bake of 2019 and it’s a good one! This Chocolate-Coconut Tart has one of my very favorite flavor combos, with coconut pastry cream hiding under a shiny dark chocolate ganache, all inside a sweet tart crust. I’m glad that cutting back on sweets was not one of my new year’s resolutions, or I guess we are saying “intentions” now, because I do intend to enjoy every bite of these babies. I did decide to responsibly keep myself from going overboard by scaling back the recipe to make a few small tartlets instead of a large format tart.

This recipe has a few components, but I spaced them out over a couple of days to make things manageable. I actually had some of Dorie’s Sweet Tart Dough in the freezer and I used that to line my shells. I made the pastry cream (I used all toasted coconut and coconut sugar to boost that flavor) and I stashed it in the fridge, along with my lined tart shells, overnight. The next day, I baked and filled the shells, then made the ganache and topped them off. Easy peasy to make and to eat. It tastes like a fancy Mounds bar. Why did it take us so long to make this?

  1. Your mini tart is gorgeous! I look forward to making this.

  2. This is gorgeous! I will obviously minify this one but wondered about making it into a sort of a “bar” – but doesn’t look like the crème pat slices neatly… Mini tarts it is then!

    • it might if you let it sit for the recommended four hours…i needed to photo it right away because i was about to leave the house for the rest of the day. although chilled and in the bowl mine is not super stiff (i didn’t need to whip or lighten it before i used it.

  3. Beautiful! I just made this and it does taste like a fancy Mounds bar.

  4. This mini tart is just beautiful..like one you would see in a bakery. I love the decorations you added :). My family loves almond joy so I am thinking this will be a hit!

  5. Yours look beautiful and sound delicious. I look forward to making this one.

  6. Haha I am happy it was not one of my resolutions either 😉 looks sumptuous!
