Tragedy Tarts - Recipe from Danielle Raver

Tragedy Tart Recipe

(Based on a mini chocolate tart recipe)
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~


Brownie Mix
Three large eggs
1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
1/4 cup water
Cherry Pie Filling
Chopped or Sliced Almonds
White Chocolate Bar

Mini cupcake liners
Mini cupcake pan
(available at Michael's!)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a large bowl mix the brownie mix with the eggs, oil, and water. Dish out brownie mix 1/3 full for each cupcake. Dab a small amount of cherry filling, with no cherries, in the center of the brownie mix. Add a small layer of brownie mix to the top. Dabble a 1/2 a teaspoon of Nutella to the top of each mixture.

Bake in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until a knife inserted to the center comes out clean.
As soon as you take the tarts out of the oven, sprinkle shaved white chocolate and crushed almonds to the top. Push in one sliced almond to the top of the tart (like a sword through the heart).

Makes over 100 mini tarts. Note: you can put the cupcake liners onto a cookie sheet, but they won't be as nicely shaped if you use the mini cupcake pan.

Alteration of this recipe by AJ Wheeler:

Instead of Nutella, fresh chocolate ganache frosting and confectioners sugar over the white chocolate shavings

  3. Danielle, what a creative tie in to your book. Looks yummy!

    1. I got the idea off from another author that suggested bringing some kind of homemade food to your book signings to tie into the theme or time period of your book. It's worked really well so far :)
