Raspberry Mouse No-Bake Tarts
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and if you are like us, you will be looking for a sweet treat to enjoy. These mini tarts are so easy to make, full of flavor and you don’t even need to use your oven. How’s that for keeping it simple?
We tend to stay in for Valentine’s Day. I like making a special meal and not fighting the crowds at the restaurants. We can eat at our leisure and make some of our favorite foods. This year I really wanted a dessert that still had some chocolate (because I love chocolate) but pairing with a fruit based filling.
This raspberry mixture is light and has a bit of a flavor kick to it with some Chambord liqueur. You can definitely keep it kid friendly by substituting extract (noted in recipe).
This easy to make Raspberry Mousse is great for Valentine’s Day or when you need a special dessert without the fuss!
Other Valentine’s Day desserts I have made other years include these Cherry Nutella Hand Pies, Lemon Raspberry Tarts and a Raspberry Chocolate Truffle Tart. Lots of sweets for your sweetie! Maybe make them all as you can never have too many sweets, right?

Tips for making tarts
To keep the chocolate crust crumbs stable, place the tart dishes in the freezer to “set” the mixture before adding filling.
Be use to use Cool Whip and not canned whipped cream. You could also substitute real whipped cream that you can make in your mixer.
Refrigerate for at least an hour for best texture.
