Princess Rain’s No-Bake, Chocolate Covered Strawberry Tarts (Valentine’s Day)

Warm someone’s heart this Valentine’s Day with these sweet, little tarts. Part cheesecake and part chocolate covered strawberry, these berry-red bites are beautiful at any holiday party. For a variation, try using raspberries or white chocolate chips.

Be creative!

Ingredients:

Crust:

12 crushed Oreos or other chocolate sandwich cookie

2 ½ TBS. melted butter

Filling:

8oz. cream cheese

2 Tbs. lemon juice

½ tsp. vanilla

1/3 cup confectioner’s sugar

Topping:

¾ cup melted chocolate chips (milk chocolate, semi sweet, or bittersweet)

18 Strawberries, washed, dried, and hulled

You will also need mini cupcake pans and 18 paper liners (optional).

Directions:

  1. Wash your hands.
  2. Line your mini muffin pan(s) with paper liners (optional). Lightly spray papers or pan with cooking spray.
  3. In a medium sized bowl, mix crushed cookies and melted butter.
  4. Firmly press about a heaping tablespoon of cookie mixture into each mini cupcake cup (we used a little glass to help us press the crumbs together, but you can just use your fingers).
  5. In a separate bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, and lemon juice together until fluffy.
  6. Spoon or pipe about a tablespoon of filling onto each crust (we put the filling in a plastic, zipper bag and cut off the corner).
  7. Melt chocolate chips for one minute in heat proof bowl. Stir for 30 seconds. Melt for an additional 30 seconds if necessary.
  8. Spoon about a teaspoon of chocolate on top of cream cheese filling.
  9. Quickly top with a strawberry, hull side down.
  10. Drizzle with more chocolate.
  11. Chill for 2 hours. Then serve!

We hope you enjoy these as much as we do!!!

Happy cooking, from Princess Rain and Sir Sidney Dragon!
