Gourmet Tarts for the Holidays

The stress of shopping, cleaning and
cooking (not to mention working full-time) can be overwhelming during the
holiday season. This year, The Daphne Baking Company’s chocolate and
chocolate raspberry tarts make an elegant ending to any meal whether it be
an impromptu after-shopping supper or Christmas dinner. Served plain or
with flavored whipped cream, even the busiest hosts can serve memorable
holiday desserts. The tarts are currently available at retail outlets
throughout New Jersey, New York, and New England as well as on-line at

Chocolate: Indulgence at its finest. The Daphne Baking Company’s flaky
chocolate crust is filled with a decadent French Valrhona chocolate

Chocolate Raspberry: A classic combination. Flaky chocolate crust is
filled with a chocolate ganache and topped with a raspberry curd.

Mocha Whipped Cream:
1 cup heavy cream, chilled
1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar
1 1/2tablespoon cocoa powder, sifted
1 teaspoon instant espresso

Using an electric mixer, whip cream, sugar, cocoa, and espresso on
medium-low speed until frothy, about 30 seconds. Increase speed to
medium-high and beat until soft peaks form.
