Fancy Brownie Tartlets

With holiday parties and events right around the corner, you will want to have the ingredients for this pretty but oh-so-simple dessert on hand.

Fancy Brownie Tartlets


  • 4 squares (1 ounce each) unsweetened chocolate
  • 4 tbsp. butter (1/2 stick)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 of a 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet), thawed
  • Confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 cup fresh raspberries
  • 2 tablespoons red jelly (such as plum)


Heat the oven to 400°F.

Place the chocolate and butter in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute or until the butter is melted. Stir until the mixture is smooth.

Stir the sugar into the chocolate mixture. Stir in the eggs and vanilla until the mixture is well blended. Stir in the flour until the mixture is smooth.

Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Roll the pastry sheet into a 15 x12-inch rectangle. Cut the pastry into 20 (3-inch) squares. Press the squares into 20 (3-inch) muffin-pan cups. Spoon about 1 tablespoon chocolate mixture into each square.

Bake the pastries for 18 minutes or they're until golden brown. Remove the pastries from the muffin-pans and cool on wire racks for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, microwave the jelly in a small bowl for 15 - 30 seconds, or until the jelly is liquid.  Drop the raspberries into the bowl and stir gently to coat them in the jelly.

Decorate the tartlets with a raspberry or with confectioners' sugar as desired.

You could use nuts or even pieces of candy {I used some of my Ghost Pepper Almond Brittle - delicious!} to decorate the tops.

However they are decorated, they will not stay on the plate very long!
