Phoodie’s Candy Cane Chocolate Tarts 11

December 18, 2012





4 Ingredients.

10 Minutes.

I PROMISE YOU that is all you need to make these cute-as-a-button, yummy-as-the-yummiest-thing-in-the-whole-wide-world little treats!

These are AWESOME to make with the kids in the school holidays or when you are VERY time poor but wanting to impress a hostess or your guests for Chrismas drinks!


INGREDIENTS (Makes 24 mini tarts)

24 sweet pastry tart shells – store bought (Note: my local supermarket has these, and I mean SUPERMARKET, not fancy local deli/grocer……although they will have them too at a billuon times the price!)

200g dark chocolate (cooking or otherwise)

100ml thick pouring cream

6 mini candy canes or 3 large ones – smashed to smithereens


1) Smash the candy canes into tiny pieces.

2) Place chocolate and cream in a pot on the stove and melt together over a low heat. Continuously stir. Once melted/combined, remove from heat and set aside. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.

3) Using a teaspoon, fill the pastry shells with the chocolate ganache.

4) Top with a sprinkle of candy cane crumb

5) Set in fridge for abouttttttt 30 mins or until firm.

Hi there :) Am not sure how to do that! I think maybe on the main page where the “Subscribe” button is, if you click it again it reverses the subscription?! Thus unsubscribing?! If not, maybe email wordpress and ask them to help you! Have a good day :)

I will never unsubscribe from your posts, I never want to miss a single one from here on in, I love how your cooking is unpretentious, simple yet glorifying to look at and eat, how awesome, and these tarts look to die for and so easy to make too, I speak on behalf of everybody else who visits your blog, thank you for sharing this cooking moment with us :)

These look great, so simple but they look so professional! Might have to make these over Christmas :)

Also, LOL at the person who just said ‘please unsubscribe me’!! Don’t know what put her off about this post, it’s gorgeous! :)

[…] is ULTRA simple and we have been making a batch every couple of days in this household! Like the candy cane tarts, these make a great host/hostess gift and everyone likes a gingerbread cookie with their cuppa tea […]

I’m just about to make these delicious looking babies but was wondering if they’ll be right in the fridge overnight to serve at Christmas lunch tomorrow? :)

ABSOLUTELY! Airtight container in the fridge. Take them out about 20 minutes before serving! MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Hi Phoodie! I was just wondering what would be a good substitute for the candy canes in these? So I can make them not at Christmas without them being too rich. I love your food!!!

Hey! Thanks so much! Gosh you could put anything! Peppermint crisp chocolate bars chopped up?! Tim tams chopped up?! Any of your favourite biscuit or chocolate bar would work! They are quite rich but that’s why I make them so tiny – that way one is perfect and for those who like rich foods they can go back for more! :)
