Hot chocolate tartsPosted: November 24, 2014
All I can say is HOLY CUTENESS in these desserts. The husband needed a dessert for his work potluck and they love more festive/creative desserts. I searched high and low for a thanksgiving dessert but nothing jumped out at me until I saw these! Very easy to make, super cute and delicious!
Enjoy these for all your holiday or winter parties!
1 package Pillsbury Sugar Cookie Dough ( if using homemade dough make sure it’s a stiff sugar cookie. Softer cookies won’t work here. Store bought produces a stiffer cookie!)
½ cup heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons hot cocoa mix
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
½ cup white chocolate chips
12 mini pretzels
1 cup Jet-Puffed Mallow Bits
Put1 tablespoon of the sugar cookie dough into 24 greased mini muffin tins.
Bake for 12-14 minutes at 350 degrees. Allow the cookies to cool completely in the pan before gently removing them.
Make the chocolate ganache by bringing the whipping cream to a boil.
Stir in the hot cocoa mix.
Pour the hot cream over the semi-sweet chocolate chips and let it sit for 3 minutes. Then, stir until the chocolate chips are melted and the ganache is smooth.
Break off the loops on some mini pretzels to use as handles.
Melt the white chocolate and use it to attach the pretzel handles to the cookie cups.
Spoon the chocolate ganache into the cookie cups and top with mini marshmallows.
