White Chocolate Pomegranate Tarts are a dainty little dessert with a burst of fresh flavor!
So, let’s take a little poll here. Who’s sick of me talking about Rosh Hashanah recipes?
I know. I know. First there was the list of 15 desserts that you can make ahead and freeze for the holidays. Then I shared a new chicken dish that’s got both apple and honey in it (I know, it’s a perfect chicken recipe for Rosh Hashanah!) followed by an amazing new apple biscotti recipe.
Well I aint’ done yet, so stay with me folks. Today I’m moving away from the apples for a bit, and instead I’m sharing a pomegranate recipe. I love the combination of white chocolate and pomegranate, and these tarts really showcase the combination perfectly! I love how they’re a teeny-tiny dessert, so it’s portion-control and party-sized all rolled into one. Whether you’re making it for Rosh Hashanah or you tuck the recipe away for the winter, when pomegranates are beautiful, juicy and at their peak, you’ll love this dessert – and the simplicity of it!
- ½ cup nondairy whipped topping
- 1 cup good quality white chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract
- ½ cup sour cream (Tofutti works)
- 30 (2 boxes) mini phyllo tart shells
- ½ cup pomegranate arils
- In a small pot, heat the nondairy whipped topping until it just begins to simmer.
- Remove from heat and add white chocolate chips. Stir until chips melt and mixture is smooth. To ensure the smoothest filling, strain the mixture through a sieve.
- Add vanilla to the white chocolate mixture and set aside to cool. Once cooled, add the sour cream and stir until combined.
- Spoon the mixture into the tart shells, then top with the pomegranate seeds. Serve cold. Enjoy!
Note: this recipe requires good quality chocolate chips, not just white chips. Check the ingredients for cocoa butter to ensure good flavor. Muzon foods sells white chocolate chips that are non-dairy and contain cocoa butter.
