These have to be one of the quickest and easiest sweet treats I have ever whipped up and they taste like summer (thanks to Nutrafresh) – which is still a few months away here in NZ. I made them for Mel and Simon when they visited last weekend to share their pictures and stories from their travels.
12 store bought pastry cases (you can make your own if you have time)
100 grams white chocolate, melted
¾ cup frozen raspberries, defrosted
1 cup cream
2 tablespoon Nutrafresh raspberry powder
1 tablespoon icing sugar
Whittakers white chocolate and raspberry chocolate for decoration
Place tart shells on a clean flat work space and evenly coat the bottom with melted white chocolate.
While your chocolate sets mash up your frozen raspberries until there are no lumps, if you want to remove seeds you can push it through a sieve.
Spoon even amounts of raspberry on top of the chocolate, as well as adding taste and creating a lovely layering effect the chocolate stops the raspberry from seeping into the shell case and making it soft.
In a mixing bowl place cream, raspberry powder and icing sugar, mix on a medium to high speed until it reaches a consistency you can pipe with.
Pipe (or spoon) cream on top of your raspberry, I used a Wilton 2D tip.
Decorate with shavings of white chocolate (I used Whittakers white chocolate and raspberry) or you could sprinkle some of the sparkling raspberry powder on top.
