These low-carb Mini Espresso Tarts are just about as pretty as they are delicious. The shortbread like crust with the creamy sugar-free chocolate espresso filling is a match made in heaven and will for sure cure any sweet tooth craving.

I topped the tarts with a few espresso beans but blackberries would be equally as delicious and provide a fresh tartness to the tarts. After refrigerating, let the tarts come to room temperature before serving, as this allows the filling to soften from the coconut oil.
