Mocha Truffle Tartlets

Yield: 30 tartlets
Prep 30 mins Chill 30 mins
Mocha Truffle Tartlets
  • 2 2.1 ounce package  baked miniature phyllo dough shells
  • 1 1/2  cups  dark chocolate pieces or chopped dark chocolate bar (9 ounces)
  • 1/4  cup  whipping cream
  • 3  tablespoons  packed brown sugar
  • 1  tablespoon  coffee-flavor liqueur or brewed coffee
  • 1/2  teaspoon  instant espresso powder
  • 1/2  teaspoon  vanilla
  • 1 8  ounce container  whipped cream cheese
  •  Unsweetened cocoa powder
  •  Chopped chocolate-covered coffee beans or chopped dark chocolate (optional)

1. Open phyllo shells, leaving shells in tray; set aside.

2. In a small saucepan melt the 1-1/2 cups dark chocolate and whipping cream over low heat, stirring occasionally. Divide melted chocolate mixture evenly among the bottoms of the phyllo shells; set aside.

3. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together brown sugar, coffee liqueur, espresso powder, and vanilla; stir until espresso powder dissolves. Add cream cheese and stir until well combined. Spoon a small amount of cream cheese mixture over chocolate mixture in each shell. (Or, place cream cheese mixture in a resealable plastic bag, cut off a small piece of one corner, and pipe cheese mixture onto chocolate filling.) Cover tartlets loosely and chill until set (about 30 minutes). Once set, tartlets can be covered tightly and chilled overnight.

4. Remove tartlets 30 minutes before serving. Sprinkle each lightly with a little cocoa powder. If desired, top each with chopped coffee beans or chopped chocolate.

5. Makes 30 tartlets
