Chocolate Truffle Tartlets for Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I’d love to share this decadent chocolate truffle tartlet with you.  If you were here, I would sit you down at my dining room table, pour you a glass of champagne or a cup of espresso as you prefer, and slide one of these tarts in front of you, all the better to properly celebrate Valentine’s Day.  We’ll just have to pretend.

My Sissy made these tarts, and we donated them to the Emergency Feeding Program Gala Auction on Sunday.  Jenny M. and Jenny R. of Will Bake for Food put out a call for local food bloggers to donate desserts to this very worthy cause.

It’s a good thing Sissy is such a talented baker, because I could never have created anything so beautiful and delicious.   The tartlet recipe came from The Pie and Pastry Bible by Rose Levy Beranbaum.

Even though we can’t share a Valentine’s Day dessert in person, I hope your day is full of conversation hearts, chocolate, flowers, and lots of kisses.

    Oh yum! How delicious. And what a great cause too. Thank you for sharing. I’m sorry I was absent last week…I’ve been traveling back and forth from Houston. I hope you have a fantastic start to your week. I’m about to get baking again!

    Oh Rowdy,

    These little tarts looks delightful. I am not doing much cooking, blogging or blog reading at the moment for one reason or another (it feels like the future of my blog is in severe jeopardy) but yours is always one that I will find a few moments to read – even if I don’t leave a comment.

    Wonderful as always my friend.
