Chocolate Ganache Tarts Recipe

Chocolate Ganache Tarts Recipe

Decadent, chocolate mousse-like filling and a flakey, tender crust make this very special. Be sure to coat hands well with flour when putting the dough into pastry cups. — Lorraine Caland, Thunder Bay, Ontario
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + chilling Bake: 20 min. + cooling YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream

  • 4. Beat chocolate mixture until soft peaks form. Pipe or spoon into tart shells. Garnish with whipped cream, raspberries and confectioners' sugar if desired. Yield: 2 dozen.
