I have made these tarts several times and they are always a huge hit. Highly recommend.
I sprayed my tins with a flour spray and the tarts browned nicely and about fell out of the tins. Served them at a Valentine Tea and guests were so impressed that I had made them !!!! will definitely make them again and will share the recipe with Grand daughter who love to bake. Love L.O.L. recipes.
I made the macaroon mixture, putting some of it into sprayed small muffin tin openings and some in small muffin papers in the rest of the openings. I couldn't get the tarts out of either one so didn't complete the recipe by making the filling. They would have been for a women's gathering and I was not willing to see them struggle with the "mess". I might try again making a "birds nest" on a flat cookie sheet, covered with parchment paper, with the macaroon mixture, putting an indentation in the middle and putting the filling in that. My question is, "how did the other reviewers get the tarts out so they could be handled easily"?
The tarts were good, but perhaps a little too sweet for my tastes. I had trouble with the crust sticking to my muffin tin even though I sprayed the tin and it was a non=stick tin. The filling was easy to make.
Easy to make, perfect size, not overbearing like most chocolate buttercream frostings. Everyone loved them!
help! I tried this recipe yesterday but the macaroon stuck to the muffin tin and would not could out. Yes i did spray each muffin tin with Pam, do you have a suggestion as I would like to try and make them today.
These were a hit at a family party, everyone loved them, event the kids. They are surprisingly easy to make but have a great presentation and everyone was impressed!
These little coconut bites are wonderful and so easy to make.I've made them many times and alway get rave reviews.A real hit with coconut and chocolate lovers.

Today marks a quarter of a century for me on this beautiful planet. Twenty-five years of learning, exploring, and stuffing my face with delicious eats. And I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than to spend a relaxing day in the kitchen.
Even though it seems like summer may have just started, let’s face it – school is just around the corner. Even if you don’t want to think about it (or, let’s be honest here, are secretly excited to have the kids back in school), it helps to plan ahead. More ...
