Black Forest Tarts

posted in: Recipes 0

If you're a fan of chocolate and cherry, this dessert might be right up your alley. I create single portion tart shells by using chocolate graham crackers and pressing the crumbs into a cupcake pan. The cream cheese filling adds richness to the dessert, while the cherry pie filling makes for an easy finish.
