Simple Fudge Tarts

READY IN: 13mins
Recipe by BetterOffBread

This is a quick recipe from "Better Homes and Gardens Christmas Cookies Special Publication 2000". I've made it a million times and my family thinks it takes alot of work to make them. SHHHHH!! I usually double the filling recipe and I pipe it into the tarts with my pastry bag (star tip) to make them look even more elegant. I also make them in advance and freeze them.

These were so easy to make. I did double the fudge part because my cookie dough was 15 ounces or so. They did look like I had spent so much more time than I did.
