Favorite Ingredient Friday... Valentine's Day Edition!

Really pretty, and so easy to make that the kids can lend a hand!

* 1 bag SNICKERS® Brand Miniatures, unwrapped
* 1 bag DOVE® Brand Chocolate Hearts or M&M'S® Brand Milk Chocolate Candies for Valentine's Day
* 1/2 cup sugar
* 1 cup heavy cream

* 2 packages (6 per package) graham crust tart shells
* 1 1/2 cups whipped topping or whipped cream
* Red sugar sprinkles
* 3 egg yolks

What to do:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Chop the SNICKERS® Brand Miniatures and put them in a bowl. Place the bowl on top of a pot with simmering water until the chocolate has melted, stirring occasionally.
In another bowl, beat the egg yolks and sugar until thick and creamy.
Stir the melted SNICKERS® Brand Miniatures into the egg and sugar mixture. Mix in the heavy cream.
Place the tart shells on a baking pan. Spoon the mixture into the tart shells, scooping from the bottom of the bowl.
Bake for 25 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool.
Decorate the top of the tart shells with a dollop of whipped topping or whipped cream. Sprinkle with red sugar and either place a DOVE® Brand Chocolate Heart on top of each one or sprinkle with M&M'S® Brand Milk Chocolate Candies for Valentine's Day.

Makes 12 tarts.
