I have been making these tarts for years. Recipe is the same but I use butter instead of margarine and instead of a chocolate wafer I use a Rosebud. Delicious.

Wow! Mouth watering little delightfuls these are! You go back for more before you realize you are eating 2 or 3. I tried white chocolate to be different and they are just as tasty! The caramel filling is so easy to make and quite delicious! Love it! I'm glad I came across this recipe!

I made these for a birthday party at work and they were gone in 10 minutes. I guess they liked them! I got lots of requests for the recipe. I used hot fudge and drizzled over the top in place of the chocolate wafers. These will be made for my family during the holidays. I know they will love them!

I don't think I can ever make these again... they were so good. I ended up with 48 mini tarts, 24 in pastry and 24 in shortbread cups. Due to dietary restrictions, I put pecans in some, none in others, chocolate on some, and none in others. I ended up with about 1 cup of leftover caramel, which I poured on a cookie sheet, thinking it would harden, it didn't, so it is destined to go into a cake pan on top of a shortbread base and will be topped with chocolate. They were easy to make, and husband REALLY appreciated them. Can't wait to share with the rest of the fam at Christmas.

These are really sweet and delicious! My tip: BE CAREFULL when cooking the mixture. Melt your butter first and dont over boil, this WILL STICK to the bottom and might burn. (Had to throw out first batch!!! snif snif) Chris

I used recipe 153222 (kittencal Mini Shortbread Tart Shells) for the pastry and we thought it was just perfect. The dough has a touch of sweetness that matches well with the sweet filling without making the whole thing cloyingly sweet. The filling was easy to make and came together quickly, set nicely, and tasted very very good. I drizzled the chocolate on top and forgot to buy pecans but for sure will add those next time. I thought they would be fiddly to make, but the filling was quite easy to work with and it went really fast. They were the first dessert to disappear from a sea of sweet nibbly things. Thanks for posting this!

Oh my...are these yummy!! Really easy to make and the instructions are easy to follow. I halved the recipe, had no problems; I suggest covering the entire top with chocolate chips to make them really decadent(I was too skimpy with my 1/2 dozen chips on each tart!~~what was I thinking!~~) These are very well received by kids and adults alike. Thanks, chef Pamela!!

These turned out really good! I made them for my mother-in-law's birthday party, and she was thrilled. Next time I will attempt to make my own tart crust, but the store bought ones worked just fine! Cute and tasty!
