While I was away in Duluth this week, my tart tins arrived. I had ordered a little cookbook to get some ideas on what kinds of mini pies or tarts I could make. I had found a mango tart online and thought I’d give that one a try first.
However, since coming back from my mini vacation, I hadn’t gotten a chance to go to the store and buy any food! But I did have all of the ingredients on hand for these Chocolate Chip Tarts. So for my first attempt with my cute little tart pans, this is what I made.
1 stick butter, melted
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. half and half cream
20 whole graham crackers crushed (4 cups)
12 oz. mini chocolate chips
Mix butter, brown sugar and cream together. Add crushed graham crackers and chocolate chips. Put in mini muffin tins (tart tins). I call these mini, but I think that mine aren’t as mini as this recipe called for. I have six tins and they are not going to make 4-5 dozen. I do think that I overfilled some of them and I had to cut them to make them “pretty”. Either way, pretty or not, they tasted pretty good.
The tins are non stick so there was no need to spray them. I had at the oven heated to 325 degrees and baked them for about 25 minutes. If you have really mini ones, then they would cook for 12-15 minutes. I checked with a toothpick to make sure the inside was done and let them cool completely. The bottom of the tins have the little tray so that you can just push the cooke/tart right out. I placed it on a plate, added some whipped cream and sprinkled with some white chocolate chips.
Nice little bedtime snack for us and we all liked it!
Have a great weekend. I’m hoping to find that Mango Tart recipe again and make that soon.
Come back soon.
