Kahlua Chocolate Tarts, One Bite Lemon or Lime Tarts

(these were made for my sister's employee Holiday Party, 2006)

I did not make the shells, I use premade ones.  The recipe came from a handout at the liquor store that you got when you bought the product.

Kahlua Chocolate Tartlets

For shells
1 stick unsalted butter
1/2c sugar
1t vanilla
1/2c cocoa, sifted
1 cup flour
For filling
4oz white chocolate, chopped
5oz semisweet chocolate, chopped
2/3c whipping cream
1/3c Kahlua

In food processor, combine butter, sugar and vanilla, process until creamy.   Add cocoa, process until smooth.   Add flour, pulse to combine.   Press onto bottom and sides of 12 3" tartlet pans.   Chill 1 hour.   Pierce bottoms with fork.   Bake at 375 for 8 mins.    Pierce again, bake another 4 mins.  Cool.

Place chocolate in separate bowls.   In saucepan, bring cream to a boil.   Add kahlua, bring to a simmer.    Pour 1/3c cream mixture over each chocolate.   Stir until smooth.   Remove crusts from pans.   Fill each about 2/3 full with chocolate filling.   Pour 3 small pools of white chocolate filling onto each, marble with knife and chill.
