What you need to make Raspberry Brownie Tarts: 

  • mini brownie tarts (see recipe below)
  • fresh raspberries
  • homemade chocolate mousse (also in recipe below)
  • plastic bread bag or frosting bag


How to Make Raspberry Brownie Tarts

Step 1:

Using the recipe below, make mini brownies tarts using a cake mix, egg, butter, and a mini muffin tin. Bake for 10 minutes and remove from the oven. Let cool for just about one minute. Using a water bottle lid, push down the middle of the tart to make a nice bowl. Repeat for all the tarts. Then let them cool

Step 2: 

Mix up chocolate mousse according to the recipe. Scoop the mousse into a bread bag or frosting bag. Snip the corner off and then fill the brownie tarts by swirling the mousse round and round until it looks pretty, like this:


Step 3:

Top with a fresh raspberry. If raspberries aren’t in season or you don’t have any, use a chocolate kiss or shaved chocolate.


Make-Ahead Tips

You can definitely make the tarts and mousse a day or so in advance, but you’ll want to assemble the raspberry brownie tarts just before your event begins. No one likes a soggie tart. Am I right?
