The love child of coconut cream and banana cream pie.
For the tarts:
Place milk and coconut into a small pot over medium heat. Bring to simmer.
In a small bowl, stir egg, egg yolk, sugar and flour together until combined. Slowly whisk hot milk into egg mixture. Place hot milk and egg mixture back into hot pot and bring to boil. Whisk while boiling filling, 2 minutes. Remove from heat mix in extracts. Divide evenly between tart shells. Press plastic wrap directly over top filling and refrigerate until cold and plastic wrap comes off clean.
To complete tart, top with banana slices.
For the cream:
Whisk cream together with cornstarch, sugar and vanilla until stiff peaks form. Divide evenly between the tarts, ensuring all bananas are covered. Sprinkle with toasted coconut, if desired. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
I chose to use semi-sweet chocolate instead of milk chocolate, so that the chocolate flavor would really punch through. This provided the perfect balance of chocolate to make the whole frosting completely “milk chocolate” in flavor.
