TWD: Chocolate Truffle Tartlets

For TWD: Baking with Julia challenge this week, Steph, Spike, Jaime, and Jessica have chosen chocolate truffle tartlets for all TWDers to try out.

After reading through the recipe, I knew that the tartlets would be too rich and chocolatey for my liking. So I decided to made only a quarter batch, and I got a 4 1/2-inch and a 2-inch tartlets. My version of chocolate truffle tartlets comes with three components - crusts made with cocoa powder, chocolate mousse filling, and chopped chocolate. I have to omit biscotti from the recipe as I do not have it on hand. The texture of the filling is fudgy and brownie-like, but not as dense as I had expected. I'm surprised that I actually enjoyed eating the tartlets even though I'm not a chocolate dessert fan!
