{TWD, BWJ} Chocolate Truffle Tartlets

Here we are with the second recipe from Baking with Julia. This Chocolate Truffle Tartlets recipe is by David Ogonowski. If you check out Spike's page she has a video of Julia putting this together. She also has the recipe posted. Our other lovely hosts for the week are Steph of A Whisk and  a Spoon, Jamie of Good Eats 'n Sweets and Jessica of Cookbookhabit.
When a recipe called for this much chocolate you know it is going to be good! I chose several different kinds of chocolate to include in my tartlets, which after tasting I thought might not work together but they did.
Funny side note...I typed Chocolate Truffle Tartlets into my phone as a reminder to post and it auto corrected to Chocolate Truffle Rattlers....

Lindt chocolate how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. :) 


The chocolate dough for the tartlets reminded me of world peace cookies. With a little more salt I could have eaten much of it without baking it. Once these were baked and cooled I cut them into fourths and took them to a superbowl party. Everyone who tried them really liked them...even if the kids liked the oreo truffle footballs I took as well. These were delicious the first day and still just as tasty the second. The second day these had the texture of a fudgy brownie and were eaten even faster by my family.

 If you would like to make these check out our hosts sites, check out the LYL,  or purchase Baking with Julia and join the group. :) Next up: Irish Soda Bread.

I think the different chocolates is what sets this apart from other chocolate tarts. Great selection. Your tarts look fantastic and I also loved how they tasted the second day. I nibbled on my leftover half earlier and it was just as good as yesterday - just a different texture.
