  • 1/3 cup (3/4 cup) heavy cream, divided
  • 4 ounces bittersweet baking chocolate, cut into chunks Substitutions available
    • semi-sweet baking chocolate
  • 2 ounces (1/4 package) cream cheese, softened
  • 4 tablespoons sugar, divided

Instructions

  • Prepare phyllo shells as directed on package for crisp unfilled tarts. Cool completely.

  • Microwave 1/3 cup of the cream and chocolate in microwavable bowl on HIGH 1 minute, stirring after 30 seconds. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Cool 5 minutes or until chocolate ganache starts to thicken. Spoon a heaping teaspoon ganache into each tart shell. Cool completely.
