Chocolate Mousse Tarts

These chocolate mousse tarts are simple, easy to make and delectable. Just ask my family!
Brenda Janschek - Baked Tarts With Raw Chocolate Mousse

Having had some issues with wheat and gluten intolerances in the past, I set about creating a gluten-free alternative that would be just as tasty as the popular versions of tart bases. A brief flirtation with trial and error that included different ingredients and measures, and I was there.

I now make several variations of the crust and filling. It’s really hard to go wrong!

The recipe below is one my whole family loves, and as soon as my husband discovers this post, I’ll be making some more I’d imagine!

Notes
  1. Be sure to grease the muffin tins well.

  3. Leftover chocolate mousse can be stored in the fridge for two days and be added to leftover tarts when ready to serve.

    Hi Brenda,

    I love these tarts I have made them a few times before. I was wondering can he bases be made the day before and put in the fridge once cool?

    Thanks Amanda
