My friend Niki is having a baby girl so we partied it up this weekend at a baby shower in her honor.  When I saw this recipe, I knew it was perfect for the shower.  They were delicious!

1 refrigerated pie crust, softened as per package instructions

1/3 cup chocolate chips

1/3 cup chocolate candy melts

15 caramel squares, unwrapped

1 tablespoon water

1  Preheat oven to 350.  Spray well of mini muffin pan with cooking spray for baking.

2  Unroll pie crust and cut 2 1/2″ circles with cookie cutter.  Press gently into wells of pan.  You should get about 18 with rerolling the crust.

3  Place about 6 chocolate chips into each crust.  Place pans in fridge until ready to use.

4  Melt caramel squares and water in microwave safe bowl on high for 30 seconds then stir.  Heat in additional 30 second intervals until melted and smooth.  Stir in coconut.

5  Spoon about 1/2 tablespoon of caramel mixture into each well on top of chocolate chips.  Spray hands with cooking spray and press mixture down evenly, work quickly as the caramel hardens fast.

6  Bake 10 – 14 minutes, until crust starts to get golden.  Cool completely in pan then remove to cooling racks.

7  Melt candy melts in microwave in 30 second intervals until melted and smooth.  Place in a sandwich bag and snip off corner.  Pipe stripes over pies.
