Chocolate and raspberry are a deliciously wonderful, classic dessert combination. The sweetness of the chocolate and the tartness of the raspberry pair perfectly. But I’m adding a salty twist to this recipe with a pretzel crust to make this Chocolate Raspberry Pretzel Tartlet. This recipe is easy to prepare with a few simple ingredients and will seriously WOW your friends because it looks like a gourmet dessert served at a very fancy restaurant.

Ingredients:

  • 4 ounces Snack Factory® Pretzel Crisps® or Snyder’s of Hanover® Pretzels
  • 4 T butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 pint raspberries

Directions:

Begin by gathering your ingredients. To make the crust for this recipe, you can use either Snack Factory® Pretzel Crisps® or Snyder’s of Hanover® Pretzels. I used the Pretzel Crisps to make the crust. This salty-sweet-tart combination is just perfect!

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. In a food processor or high-speed blender, create fine pretzel crumbs. This quantity will make half a cup. Combine the melted butter, pretzel crumbs, and sugar in a large bowl. Line the bottom and sides of each opening in a four-opening tartlet pan with pretzel crumb mixture. Bake for about 10 minutes until the crust is firm. Place the tartlet pan in the refrigerator to cool.

In a medium saucepan, combine the bittersweet chocolate and heavy cream over a low heat. Continuously whisk until melted to form a delicious dark chocolate ganache. Pour this chocolate ganache mixture into each of the four openings of the tartlet pan. Set the pan in the refrigerator until the ganache sets.

This is the absolute perfect time of the year to celebrate raspberries with this delicious recipe! I fit 11 raspberries on teach tart in concentric circles, but feel free to decorate your tarts however you would like. Not a fan of raspberries? Try strawberries or even bananas instead!

How beautiful are these tarts? Place them in a refrigerator for a minimum of 2 hours for a gooey interior or overnight for a more fudge-like interior. My kids {and husband and sister} were fairly impatient, so we enjoyed the more pudding-like chocolate when they were just set.

And to show you why this dessert reminds me of summer, here are some pictures from last year, when we took our 4,000-mile road trip from Florida to Maine. While in Maine, we went raspberry-picking at a local farm. In South Florida, you can find strawberries in late winter and early spring, and blueberries in North Florida in the spring. Raspberries generally grow further north, so it was exciting to find them on a small farm in Maine.

Head to your local grocery store where you can grab a bag of Snack Factory® Pretzel Crisps® or Snyder’s of Hanover® Pretzels along with the other ingredients to make this phenomenal Chocolate Raspberry Pretzel Tartlet recipe.

What’s your favorite summer snack to entertain guests?
