Mini Chocolate Cream Pies

So I had some leftover chocolate icing, mini tart shells and cool whip and not being one to waste leftovers a fabulous idea came to me...couldn't I just make tarts out of these and wouldn't they taste just like a chocolate cream pie??? Low and worked!  These tasted amazing... so good and easy in fact that I ate every last one!  Here is another easy semi-homemade actually more like mostly-store-bought-just-put-it-together recipe.

Mini Chocolate Cream Pies

1 pie crust
1 can chocolate frosting
1 tub whipped topping or whipped cream

Unroll pie crust and using a small biscuit cookie cutter, cut out rounds of dough.  You want to basically cover the bottom and barely the sides for the cups of a small muffin tin.  Press dough into the bottom of the muffin cups and prick with a fork a few times so they do not puff up.
Bake about 10-15 minutes and let cool.
Melt frosting in the microwave so that it is easy to stir.
Drop frosting by the 1/2 teaspoon full to fill the cooled tart shells.
Place a large dollop of whipped topping on the chocolate after it cools.

This recipe will probably make about 24 cups with extra frosting and cream.

These things are delicious and super easy to make... people will think you went to a lot of trouble to make those little pies...muahahaha!
