Simple Fudge Tarts
A shortcut cookie dough crust and just two other ingredients make this simple chocolate dessert.
- Makes: 24 servings
- Yields: 24 tarts
- Prep: 20 mins
- Bake: 11 mins 350°F
- Lightly coat twenty-four 1-3/4-inch muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray or line with paper or foil bake cups; set aside.
- For tart shells, cut cookie dough into 6 equal pieces. Cut each piece into 4 equal slices. Place each slice of dough in a prepared cup.
- Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 9 minutes or until edges are light brown and dough is slightly firm but not set. Remove tart shells from oven. Gently press a shallow indentation in each tart shell with the back of a round 1/2 teaspoon measuring spoon. Bake 2 minutes more or until the edges of tart shells are firm and light golden brown. Let tart shells cool in cups on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Carefully remove tart shells from cups. Cool completely on wire racks.
- For filling, in a small saucepan combine chocolate pieces and sweetened condensed milk. Cook and stir over medium heat until chocolate is melted. Spoon a slightly rounded teaspoon of filling into each cooled tart shell. (Or, if desired, spoon the slightly cooled melted chocolate mixture into a small self-sealing plastic bag. Cut off one corner of the bag and pipe fudge mixture into each tart shell.) Cool completely, allowing filling to set. Store in a tightly covered container at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month. Makes 24 tarts.
Arrange a single layer of tarts in the dish. Tie a ribbon around the dish, making a bow with the ends. Trim the ribbon ends, if desired.
Place the tarts in decorative vintage glassware such as small relish trays, saucers, or casseroles.
