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!

a bag of Hershey's Kisses, a can of good Cherry Pie Filling and some

may need to press the kiss down into the shell a little to

the oven, press the chocolate kiss down with the back
of a spoon.

chocolate curls or sprinkles and you're ready to serve!!
BLACK FOREST TARTS
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

on a baking sheet. Unwrap 30 chocolate kisses,

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.
