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

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 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
  • Whipped cream, fresh raspberries and confectioners' sugar, optional

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, beat butter and cream cheese until smooth; beat in flour. Drop dough by scant tablespoonfuls into greased miniature muffin cups; with well-floured hands, press dough onto bottoms and up sides of cups.
  2. Bake at 325° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  3. Place chocolate chips in a small bowl. In a small saucepan, bring cream just to a boil. Pour over chocolate; whisk until smooth. Transfer to a small bowl; cover and refrigerate until firm.
  4. Beat chocolate mixture until soft peaks form. Pipe or spoon into tart shells. Garnish with whipped cream, raspberries and confectioners' sugar if desired.
