A chewy chocolate cookie crust topped with rich chocolate and fluffy whipped cream! Yaaaas. These Mini Chocolate Pies have a double dose of rich chocolate flavor without any gluten, dairy or soy. Simple and Delicious. Vegan and Paleo!
Chocolate Cuteness Overload
These mini pies are so cute. The individual servings are perfect for parties. (Or portion control. Because sometimes I just wanna eat the whole pie! 😉
They’re made in a muffin pan, which almost everybody already has. No need to go out and buy a special pan.
But I’m dying over these tiny cake stands #hearteyes. Too friggin’ cute. So if you’re feelin’ fancy, you can serve each pie on its own pedestal! I found these at TJ Maxx (love that place).
Easy Does It
There’s no baking involved in making the chocolate coconut cookie crust. Blend the ingredients in a food processor and press into a pan. Literally less than 5 minutes to prepare.
Tip: use a silicone muffin pan or line with parchment so they pop right out.
Are you a chocolate lover?
It’s pretty crazy to me to think that I didn’t even LIKE chocolate growing up. (I DO NOW, lol!) Now that my tastes have changed, I love chocolate (especially super dark!) And I love being able to make my own chocolate desserts without any unwanted ingredients (like gluten, dairy and soy) that I can’t eat due to my health issues.
If you want to satisfy your chocolate craving, you’ll love how simple this is. The decadent chocolate filling is made with chocolate chips, coconut milk, and a touch of sweetener, and it’s held together with a little coconut oil. Definitely rich. A chocolate lover’s dream!
(Did you know Enjoy Life brand chocolate chips are dairy-free, soy-free and nut-free? Allergy and vegan friendly- Yay!)
Have It Your Way
I love how they have a slight coconutty flavor. Coconut + Chocolate is a perfect combination. (But if you’re NOT a coconut fan, use *refined* coconut oil, which has a neutral flavor.)
If you’re like me and you really want to amp up the coconut flavor, add 1/2 tsp coconut extract. Hello, YUM.
But you can use other extracts to switch up the flavor, too! MINT, ALMOND, COFFEE, or stick with traditional vanilla extract!! However YOU like! >>What’s your favorite pairing with chocolate?
