Reader Recipe Spotlight – Decadent Dark Chocolate Raspberry Tarts

Lindt recently asked readers to submit their favorite Thanksgiving dessert recipe containing Lindt Chocolate.  A variety of different desserts have been submitted and it has been difficult selecting my favorites! Deb L. submitted this Decadent Dark Chocolate Raspberry Tart recipe.

This recipe shows how simple it can be to  create a delicious dessert! Dark chocolate and raspberries pair beautifully to create a symphony of flavor. The mini tarts are perfect to take to Holiday parties or to serve at home. Best of all, you can make them in advance so you don’t have to miss any time with friends and family! Thank you Deb, for using premium Lindt chocolate in your recipe and sharing it with us on Lindt Chocolate Unwrapped.

Deb L.: “I originally developed this recipe for my family, who loves dark chocolate. It has since become a favorite everywhere I go. I have been asked to make these tarts for everything from faculty luncheons to weddings. They are relatively easy to make and with the superior taste of Lindt Chocolate, absolutely divine!”

    I forgot to add that if you are in a real hurry, you can simply make the chocolate filling and pour it into a prepared graham cracker pie crust and have a spectacular dessert made in literally minutes!
