They'll expect a sweet surprise on Valentine's Day. But they might not see this coming: a dessert for two that's perfect for August, aka National Romance Month. We're celebrating with our latest summer love, this rich and romantic no-bake chocolate strawberry heart tart recipe.

No-Bake Chocolate Strawberry Tart

Presentation. Presentation. Presentation. Start setting the mood for love with a romantic table. We used classic white plates, gold plastic forks and topped it all off with a red bouquet of long-stem roses from ProFlowers. We’re totally smitten with their Romance Month mission to love boldly.

 

No-Bake Chocolate Strawberry Tart with roses and gold forks

When we created this recipe, we thought of every detail. Because when it comes to love, and gifts, it’s the little things that count—like a sweet strawberry rose on top of dark, melted chocolate.

One look, and one bite of this decadent tart and they’ll fall in love with it (and you for making it). And if they really love you, they’ll share a forkful or two. Especially when you tell them about all the hours you spent slaving away in a hot kitchen. Even though it’s really super easy and you don’t even have to turn on your oven.

four No-Bake Dark Chocolate Strawberry Heart Tarts

Ingredients:

FIlling

1 cup dark chocolate morsels

1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate

1 cup heavy whipping cream

Crust

10 graham crackers

6 T melted butter

1/3 cup granulated sugar

Muffin tin and 12 cupcake wrappers

Directions:

Line muffin tin with cupcake wrappers and set aside.

Crush graham crackers into fine powder then add sugar and melted butter, mix until well combined. Mixture should be feel course and sandy. Press firmly into sides of cupcake wrappers in muffin tin. Set aside.

In a sauce pan combine dark chocolate morsels, bittersweet chocolate and heavy whipping cream over low heat. Stir constantly until chocolate is completely melted and ingredients are well combined. Remove from heat and pour chocolate evenly into graham-cracker-lined cupcake wrappers.

Cut strawberries in half and cut a divot in the top center with a knife to create heart shape. Place one strawberry heart on the top of each tart.

Refrigerate at least 1-2 hours.
