Holiday Chocolate Tarts

The holiday season is here and our keto kitchens are baking up a storm. This week I made chocolate ganache tarts. The chocolate firms up nice and hard and the crust is wonderfully flaky. If you are having a chocolate craving these little tarts will deliver.

The crust recipe is the same one from the Butter Tarts post. It’s a great versatile crust recipe and has become a staple for all of my baking.

Happy Holidays and Enjoy!
