Chocolate Tarts

Comment on this recipe

The filling recipes makes more than enough for one batch of tarts. I have also used different flavors of puddings, leaving out the cocoa and using the whole package of pudding.

Ingredients

Tarts:
1 cup all purpose flour
1 stick margarine (DO NOT USE BUTTER)
Filling:
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
8 ounces whipped topping
1 cup half-and-half
1/2 of a 4-ounce package chocolate pudding
3 tablespoons cocoa
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup half-and-half
8 ounces whipping cream, whipped
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, optional

Instructions

To make tarts: Melt margarine and stir in flour. Roll into marble size balls. Put into ungreased miniature cupcake pan and press onto bottom and up sides of each section. If you have a tart tamper, this works wonderfully. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes. Carefully remove from pans. They will be fragile. Tarts can be frozen. To make filling: Whip all ingredients together until thick. Spoon into tarts. Keep refrigerated.
