Give Me A Kiss Tarts

I have a fantastic mini tart recipe to share with you today!
I call them Give Me A Kiss Tarts! As the name implies, the
tarts do have a Kiss inside - a Hershey's Kiss which makes 
them perfect for Valentine's Day!

These tarts are super simple and only require 2 packs of Mini Fillo Shells,
a bag of Hershey's Kisses, a can of good Cherry Pie Filling and some
whipped cream!

First you put one Hershey's Kiss in each Fillo Shell. You 
may need to press the kiss down into the shell a little to
flatten the base.

Bake for 5 minutes. When you remove the tarts from
the oven, press the chocolate kiss down with the back 
of a spoon.

Then spoon one cherry with a little sauce on top of the 
chocolate kiss.

Top that with some pink whipped cream and some
chocolate curls or sprinkles and you're ready to serve!!

Adapted from Family Circle


2 Packages mini fillo pastry shells (15 per package)
31 foil wrapped milk chocolate kisses
1 can cherry pie filling
1 can (7oz) refrigerated whipped topping 
1 cup heavy cream, 1/4 cup powdered
sugar (or to taste), pink food color


Heat oven to 350 degrees. Place mini fillo shells
on a baking sheet. Unwrap 30 chocolate kisses,
place one in each cup.

Bake 5 minutes. Remove from oven. With the
back of a spoon, gently press down the point 
of the kiss into each cup.

Open the can of pie filling. With a small spoon,
scoop out one cherry with a little sauce and place
in fillo cup on top of the chocolate kiss.
(Do not refrigerate or the chocolate kiss will

Immediately before serving, top each mini
cup with whipped topping - or make homemade
whipped cream by beating together the 1 cup
heavy cream, 1/4 cup powdered sugar and the
pink food coloring in a chilled bowl with chilled
beaters until stiff. Then place in a piping bag
fitted with a tip of choice (I used a Wilton 1M)
and pipe onto tarts.  Top with chocolate curls,
chocolate sprinkles, or grate the last chocolate 
kiss over the whipped cream. 

What's not to love about chocolate and cherries and
whipped cream?!

These tarts are so addictive!! 
Betcha can't stop at one!!
