  1. Gently heat the cream and the sugar in a small pan. Once the cream has been brought to a simmer, remove from the heat and add the chopped chocolate. Let the chocolate melt for 1 minute, then stir until smooth. 
  2. Add the coffee to the pan and stir to combine. Pour the chocolate mixture into a jug, then carefully pour into the pastry cases. 
  3. Top each tart with a pecan half and then chill in the fridge for 2 hours, until set. 

Cook's tip:

The delicious chocolate and coffee tart filling can also be served on its own as a decadent dessert. Simply spoon into small glasses and chill until set before serving. It's quite rich, so a little goes a long way!
