These tarts are one of my very favorite go-to recipes for a quick dinner party dessert anytime of the year – but, especially, during the holidays. They look like you spent hours on them, when really you can make huge batch in just minutes. There is just something about the creamy coolness of the raspberry filling, the crunch of the tart and then when you least expect it – pow, a little dark chocolate – AMAZING. Plus, I just love the combination of dark chocolate with the raspberry – have I mentioned these are amazing? I need to make another batch :).
