Snackin’ with Sarah Sellers: Mini Chocolate Raspberry Tarts

Mini Chocolate Raspberry Tarts

Cupcake for lunch, check. Mini tarts for dinner…don’t judge me!

My sweet tooth has been absolutely out of control lately so for tonight’s Idol results show I’m sticking with the British theme and honoring the Brits love for all things sweet!

I went a little crazy with the raspberry puree and added extra liquid so make sure you let it live in the fridge for a little bit to avoid a super runny tart. I learned this the hard way…raspberry liquid all over my plate and hands…and no I did not lick up every drop.

*If you prefer for this to be alcohol free then just omit the orange liquor!

Check out tonight’s recipe on Lyndsey Parker’s Reality Rocks blog HERE!

Happy Eating!
