Are you getting ready for Valentines Day? I don't know about you, but I'd rather make a wonderful dinner at home with our Valentine favorites than fight the crowds for a mediocre meal. Call me crazy, but its just so much more relaxing to cook a meal together and be able to relax and enjoy it at home. And for the perfect finish, all you need is some of these French Silk Mousse Tartlets with Fresh Berries! A picture is usually worth a million words, but every silky bite of these is better than the last!
I was so happy when Skipper got me a new commercial tart pan for Christmas...and I think this will be a nice reward for him, don't you think? These little tarts are so very easy to make, and so very perfect for all my little loves - and my big guy too! We love the flaky, buttery homemade pie crust, but if you're rushed for time or need a shortcut, you can always use refrigerated pie dough, or frozen pre-made tart shells or puff pastry. And the French Silk Mousse filling? GAH! It's so rich, creamy and silky that you will want to devour it with a spoon!
If you're not a berry person, you can always top these with a dollop of fresh whipped cream and some chocolate curls, but there's something about the color and flavor of fresh strawberries and raspberries that make me happy!
You'll have a fair bit of the Chocolate Silk Mousse left after making theses - which means you can make more tartlets, smaller tartlets, or even just one BIG tart. Feel free to customize whichever way works best for you! But if you do have some filling leftover, it looks pretty in a parfait glass layered with whipped cream and berries.
And whether you're celebrating Valentines Day, or Galentines Day, or Friends Day, whatever...just make these. Believe me, no one will be disappointed!
Love to you all!
