Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350° F degrees.

Step 2

Mix egg whites, sugar and shredded coconut together until they are thoroughly combined.

Step 3

Lightly oil a standard-size muffin tin.

Step 4

Using the back of a spoon, press the coconut mixture evenly into each mold forming a crust on the bottom and up the sides. Bake for 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Let cool for a few minutes then carefully remove and let cool further.

Step 5

Meanwhile, bring heavy cream and orange marmalade to a simmer then turn off the heat. Add your favourite chocolate and the orange-scented liqueur, stirring with a whisk until smooth. Pour into each crust and allow to cool. Let tarts set for at least 15 minutes in the refrigerator.

Step 6

To garnish try peeling an orange with a vegetable peeler into eight thin pieces then simmer them in water and sugar for 20 minutes. Let cool in the syrup and drain before adding a twist to the top of each tart. A little whipped cream wouldn’t hurt either!
