Macaroon Tarts with Chocolate Ganache

Yields1 Serving

 2 cups flaked or shredded coconut, sweetened or unsweetened
 1/4 cup sugar
 2 egg whites
 3/4 cup heavy (whipping) cream
 1 cup chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate
 chocolate eggs (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350F.


In a small bowl, stir together the coconut, sugar and egg whites. Spray a small tart pan or mini muffin pan with nonstick spray and press about a tablespoon of the coconut mixture into each, gently pressing into the bottom and up the sides. Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden. Set aside to cool, but use a thin knife to run around the edge of each and remove it from the pan while it's still warm.


To make the ganache, warm the cream in a small saucepan until steaming. Add the chocolate and let sit for a few minutes, then whisk until smooth. Spoon into the cooled tart shells and refrigerate until it firms up - top each with a chocolate egg.


Makes about 2 dozen tarts.
