Mini Chocolate Coconut Pies

At least they feel like pie to me. They might be cake! Or giants.

None the less, they’re chocolate-y and sweet and your watering mouth cavern beggeth.

And it’s simple! Take a looksie.

Your standard baking ingredients.

AND GUYS. I’m not a baker, so this is huge for me. To be posting dessert? What is happening to my life? OUR PET’S HEADS ARE FALLING OFF.

And I threw in some Greek yogurt and coconut sugar because I wanted to feel inventive and cool. Did it work?

You don’t have to answer.

Also! Ignore my filthy range. I was going to clean it, but melting chocolate and butter took priority.

These things happen.

You basically cut out little pie crust circles and shove them into ramekins. They might not touch the bottoms of the rams, but that’s okay! You’re still a good person.

Then pour the pie batter into each crust cup, and let tiny fingers destroy your hard work with subpar decorating skills.

Then finish up on your own because you’re a food blogger and your ego depends on the way these look.

Boom! Slightly puffed, slightly cracked, slightly toasted, slightly melted, slightly AWESOME.

Like, I don’t even have words.

(Oh don’t get so excited.)

Make these! Not overly sweet, the Greek yogurt adds a subtle tang, it’s dense-ish inside, but not bricky. Coconut throughout, and on top, all lounging out with the chocolate chips. Man, oh man.

Also, going to keep this short because there’s a baby bunny stuck in our tiki torch (don’t ask) and Charlie wants it for breakfast. So I’m going to wake Aaron up before I have a melt down and get arrested for sounding like I’m the one getting murdered.

    These look delicious! I'd much rather eat one (or two) of these instead of the salad I just prepared for my lunch! Chocolate is a food group, right?? It must be. I am sure it is for some of us! Thanks, Bev!

    DID YOU SAVE THE BABY BUNNY?

      Things did not go well for the baby bunny. :(

        Oh dear. I’m going to pretend that I don’t know that. I’m going to need at least two chocolate pies to get through this.

    Yum! All of my faves in one dessert. Now, about coconut sugar.....Is that something I have to go to Whole (Paycheck) Foods for or is this a regular old grocery store thing? I love all things coconut so I don't have an aversion to the idea. And I really don/t want to put old C & H in there if this ingredient is crucial to the outcome.

      I was wondering the same thing. Is this a life altering ingredient?
      • Bev Weidner April 11, 2018 at 6:51 am #
        Not life altering! I was just trying to take the regular white sugar down a bit. But feel free to use what you have!

      Trader Joe’s sells it
    • Bev Weidner April 11, 2018 at 6:51 am #
      It's not 100% necessary! I just like the flavor, and was trying to reduce the amount of white sugar. If you don't have it, no sweat!

    I've bought coconut sugar at Wal Mart so no need to spend ALL your money at Whole Foods!
