Ingredients

Shells

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa

Filling

3 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened baking chocolate
3 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Glaze

1 (1-ounce) square white baking bar
1/2 teaspoon shortening

Directions

Heat oven to 325°F. Combine 1/2 cup butter and cream cheese in small bowl. Beat at medium speed until smooth. Add all remaining shell ingredients; beat at low speed until well mixed and forms a dough.

Shape dough into 24 (1 1/4-inch) balls with floured hands. Place 1 ball of dough into each ungreased mini muffin cup. Press dough evenly on bottom and up sides of muffin cup.

Melt baking chocolate and 3 tablespoons butter in small saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Remove from heat. Cool 5 minutes. Stir in all remaining filling ingredients until smooth.

Spoon filling into each shell. Bake 26-28 minutes or until filling is set. Cool in pans 5 minutes. Carefully remove tartlets from pan. Cool completely on cooling racks over waxed paper.

Microwave white baking bar and shortening in small microwave-safe bowl. Stir until smooth; drizzle glaze over tartlets.

My family loved these tarlets.
These are very good! I made them for my husband's co-workers and they loved them. They are rich and just the right size. I would definitely make these again!
