TWD Chocolate Truffle Tartlets

Chocolate Truffle Tartlets

I came thisclose to not doing this week’s Tuesday With Dorie assignment for Chocolate Truffle Tartlets.

I didn’t have tartlet pans, I didn’t want to have to hunt down biscotti, and the directions made me exhausted just reading them. But then I got swept up in the enthusiasm and decided I needed to give it a shot, long process or not!

I ended up getting the tartlet pans from Amazon and managed to find a box of biscotti at the grocery store, so I was set. I warned my family ahead of time that I’d probably be baking for most of Sunday and to not get their hopes up about me participating in much else (yeah, that always plays out well).

This week’s project was hosted by Steph, Spike, Jaime and Jessica. You can find the recipe at any of their blogs.

The dough ended up being nice and easy to put together. I used the food processor method and instead of mashing it against the counter like the instructions said to, I squished it against the inside of a bowl instead (much easier to clean up!).

I ended up using morsels for all the chocolate. I already had it all on-hand and honestly, why mess with chopping when everything’s so perfectly ready and willing?

The eggs and melted chocolate were fun to play with and I had to not let myself get too carried away with the mixing.

The biscotti was really yummy, with slivers of almonds and the bottoms coated in dark chocolate. I felt a little bad about chopping them up, but there are still more in the box so I’ll be okay.

I was afraid there was too much filling for only six tarts, but it worked out perfectly.

It was torture waiting for them to cool.

The inside was deliciously gooey, and set up quite a bit more the longer they cooled (I did wait the full 20 minutes for these, I promise).

I think the only thing I’d change about these would be to add some chopped walnuts. Otherwise, they are perfection.

Mike helped out with the taste testing.

And I was able to bribe talk the girls into helping with dishes.
