VALENTINE'S DAY DESSERTS - Chocolate Raspberry Tarts

Serve your Valentine a Tart from the Heart with these tasty, tiny Mini Chocolate Raspberry Heart Tarts. They're easy because the pie dough is pre-made and all you have to do is shape it into little heart shaped tart shells, pipe in a little classic chocolate ganache and top off with fresh raspberries and some powdered sugar and chocolate shavings! Drizzle a little raspberry coulee around the serving dish for some extra flair.

Really, chocolate ganache sounds complicated but it's easy-peasy! You can also make chocolate truffles from this ganache recipe and a score of other great chocolate dishes. It's simply a matter of pouring melted cream and butter over semi-sweet chocolate bits!

I've done this in several variations for all sorts of holidays and special occasions. I've used done is as a lemon meringue pie with a chocolate surprise, I've piped in sweetened cream cheese and topped it with strawberries - I've even used this shaped pastry idea for mini meat pies as a savory Tiny Food!
