  2. Press equal amounts of crust into 4 mini tart pans with remove-able bottoms. Press crust up the sides of the pan as well as cover the bottom of tin.  Chill while making filling.

Filling:

  1. Open coconut cream from can and drain off water. Place solid coconut pieces in small saucepan. Use the drained coconut water for other recipes if desired.
  2. Add remaining ingredients to saucepan.  Stir over medium low heat  with a whisk until melted and thickened like ganache.  Cool 5 minutes.

  4. Serve tarts by removing tart shells from the pan on individual serving plates.

Notes

Coconut cream is different than coconut milk.  You want the kind that comes in a can. C milk has water added and will not produce the creamy texture of ganache.

Crust will be sticky so chilling in a must.

Dessert can be made a head and kept chilled until serving.
