Mini White Chocolate and Peppermint Tarts Recipe


This is such an easy and tasty recipe that I found on the Pillsbury website, with a few minor changes for ease:

What You Will Need:

–   ½ cup of whipping cream

–   ½ cup of chopped white chocolate or white chocolate baking bar

–   ½ tsp of peppermint extract

–   1 box of Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box

–   ½ cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips

–   3 Tbsp of butter

–   8 peppermint crushed candies

–   White chocolate curls, if desired

What You Will Need to do:

1.   Preheat your oven to 425°F.

2.   In a saucepan, heat cream to a boil over medium heat.  Place chopped white chocolate in heatproof bowl.  Pour cream over chocolate.  Let stand 10 minutes to soften chocolate.  Beat white chocolate mixture with whisk until smooth.  Refrigerate for an hour.

3.    Unroll both pie crusts onto work surface.  Cut 8 rounds using 3 1/2-inch cookie cutter or cut around tart pan with sharp knife.  Fit each pastry round into ungreased 3-inch tart pan.  Trim edges with knife.  Pierce pastry with fork.

4.   Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool in pans.  Remove from pans; set aside.

5.   With electric mixer, beat white chocolate mixture on medium-high speed until whipped.  Add peppermint extract; beat until combined.

6.   In another 1-quart saucepan, heat chocolate chips and butter over low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted.  Cover bottom of each tart shell with melted chocolate.  Top with white chocolate mixture.  Garnish each tart with crushed peppermint candies and white chocolate curls.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.

There are many things that I love to do. One of those things is crafts! If I could find a job that involved crafts and being able to pay the bills, I'd be all over it! I've also found a great love for cooking and baking in the past few years. Sometimes there doesn't seem to be enough time in the day to be able to fully get into cooking and baking to the degree that I would like to. I've also found myself making a HUGE effort to save my family money. I'm still a beginner but I'm surprised at how many different ways I've found to save money, including starting to use coupons! I hope you enjoy all that I'm about to share.
