Super simple Valentine's dessert

Just got this recipe from the California Walnut Board. I'm going to try it because it sounds so easy, delicious, and full of real-food ingredients. Just be sure to use really good-quality dark chocolate (I prefer 65-70% cocoa content). They can be made ahead and refrigerated for up to 36 hours.chocolate-tartlets.jpg

Walnut Raspberry Chocolate Tartlets

1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts, toasted

1 cup puffed brown rice cereal

4 ounces dark chocolate, melted

36 fresh raspberries

6 sprigs fresh mint

1. Arrange six cupcake papers on a baking sheet or in a muffin pan; set aside.

2. In a large bowl, combine the walnuts and rice cereal; mix well. Add the melted chocolate and stir until all is well coated. Divide evenly among the 6 paper-lined cups and press gently with the back of a soup spoon. Arrange 6 raspberries on top, gently pressing them into position while the chocolate is still warm. Garnish with a sprig of the mint. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes. Remove from the paper liners before serving.
