Spiked Dark Chocolate Ganache Tartlets

We've come upon the home stretch now...

I hope I've inspired you to make some delicious edible gifts for your sugarpie this Valentine's day.


There's these Chocolate & Vanilla Sandwich Cookies that are cute enough to serve to a mouse.

Or how about these Silky Dark Chocolate Truffles that are so rich and smooth you might want to play some Barrie White on the record player as you eat them. Anyone still have a functioning record player?

You could even power up for an intellectual evening with this gift of brain food in the form of moist Soy-Ginger Steamed Salmon with Red Chilis.

Finally, you could make these Spiked Dark Chocolate Ganache Tartlets which scream cuteness, but also are a bit seductive. I drenched these in heart sprinkles because they totally deserved it. I also drenched them in booze. Sue me.


As a matter of fact, you could probably make all of these items since you can use the same ganache for all 3 treats. Just keep it away from the salmon....I don't think that would mesh well.

I spiked these tartlets with a little bit of brandy for an extra kick (...and to help get your valentine a little tipsy. You're welcome). They're so rich and intensely chocolatey. If you're a dark chocolate fan, then you will love these.

They really do make a perfect Valentine's Day treat. They're simple and straightforward. The filling is right there in your face and it's not hidden by any whipped cream, chocolate drizzle, nuts or fruit.

So if you just want to put your love out there on this holiday, you should definitely express it with these chocolate-laden tartlets.
