Ingredients

Shells:
1/2 cup Butter, softened
1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
Filling:
3 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened baking chocolate
3 tablespoons Butter
2/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
Glaze:
1 (1-ounce) square white baking bar
1/2 teaspoon shortening


Heat oven to 325°F. Combine 1/2 cup butter and cream cheese in small bowl. Beat at medium speed until smooth. Reduce speed to low; add all remaining shell ingredients. Beat until well mixed and forms a dough.


Shape dough into 24 (1 1/4-inch) balls with floured hands. Place one ball of dough into each ungreased mini muffin cup. Press dough evenly on bottom and up sides of muffin cup.


Melt baking chocolate and 3 tablespoons butter in small saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth (2 to 3 minutes). Remove from heat. Cool 5 minutes. Stir in all remaining filling ingredients until smooth.


Spoon filling into each shell. Bake for 26 to 28 minutes or until filling is set. Cool in pans 5 minutes. Carefully remove tartlets from pan. Cool completely on cooling racks over waxed paper.


Melt white baking bar and shortening in small microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (45 to 60 seconds). Stir until smooth; drizzle glaze over tartlets.
