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?

Chocolate Coconut Cookie Crust:

Chocolate Filling:

Coconut Whipped Cream:


To make the crust:

  • Pulse all ingredients together in a food processor until sticky crumbles form. 
  • Press into a silicone muffin pan OR use parchment liners. Set in the freezer while you prepare the filling.

To make the filling:

  • Place chocolate chips in a medium bowl. In a small saucepan on the stove (or glass bowl in the microwave), heat coconut milk to just boiling.
  • Pour hot coconut milk over the chocolate chips and let it sit for about 5 minutes to melt the chocolate. Whisk smooth.
  • Add in the remaining ingredients and stir until well-combined. Taste and adjust for sweetness.
  • Pour chocolate mixture over crust and freeze for 2 hours or until solid. Remove from muffin pan.

To make the whipped cream:

  • Refrigerate a can of coconut milk overnight. Scoop out the solid cream into a mixing bowl. Add maple syrup and vanilla.
  • Whip with a hand mixer for about 1 minute until light and fluffy.
  • Spread whipped cream on top of each pie. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

    Would oat milk work in the filling instead of the coconut milk? Just wondering because my sister has a coconut allergy. Obviously I would leave out the coconut shreds from the crust.

    • Emily

      Yes, I think that would work, but they just won’t be as rich. And I would probably use less so that they are sure to solidify. If you try it, let me know how it goes 🙂
