Ok, brief explanation. I've been doing Weight Watchers for 3 months now, and I've lost about 22 lbs. I'm wanting to put together some treats to take to holiday parties, but I don't want to make a bunch of stuff that I can't eat. I've found a few good recipes, but this one in particular presents a problem. That being that I do not own even 1 ramekin, let alone 12.

Does anybody have any pointers on whether or not these could be made in something else... cupcake wrappers, perhaps? Any suggestions would be fantastic!

Pecan Tartlets (taken from the WW website)

POINTS Value: 3
Servings:  12
Preparation Time:  10 min
Cooking Time:  37 min
Level of Difficulty:  Easy
Part souffle, part tartreally just pecan pie minus the crust. Whatever you call them, they're absolutely delicious.

2 spray(s) cooking spray   
3 large egg(s)   
1/8 tsp table salt   
1 Tbsp butter, melted   
1/3 cup(s) dark corn syrup   
2/3 cup(s) dark brown sugar   
1 tsp vanilla extract   
1/3 cup(s) chopped pecans   
24 half pecan halves   

Preheat oven to 450F. Place twelve 3-ounce ramekins in a shallow baking pan or on a rimmed cookie sheet for easy handling; coat ramekins with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, beat eggs with salt. Add melted butter, corn syrup, sugar and vanilla; beat well. Blend in chopped pecans and then spoon batter half way up ramekins; gently place 2 pecan halves on top of each ramekin.

Bake for about 17 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350F and bake until a knife or toothpick inserted in center of a ramekin comes out clean, about 15 to 20 minutes more. Remove from oven and allow to cool; serve in ramekins with a spoon, either warm or cold. Yields 1 per serving.

I bet you could do it just fine in a cupcake pan. Not sure what size cupcake pan would translate to 3 oz ramekins though!
