Chocolate Mascarpone Mousse Tarts With Strawberries

A baked tart shell or about 20 mini tart shells

2 cups strawberries

6 oz baking chocolate, finely chopped.

1 cup cream, divided

1 cup mascarpone

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

2 tablespoons orange juice

 

Warm 1/3 cup cream in a saucepan over medium heat. Do not let it boil. Remove from the heat and add the chocolate and whisk until the chocolate melts and is smooth. Set aside and let cool to room temperature.

 

Once the chocolate is at room temperature, add the remaining cream to the mixing bowl of an electric mixer. Add the mascarpone and beat on low to break up the mascarpone. Once it is smoother, add the cinnamon and orange juice and beat on medium until soft peaks form. Don't overbeat!

 

Spoon or pipe into the tart shell(s) and top with sliced strawberries.
