And the sea salt?? Well, salted chocolate is pretty much the best thing ever.

I have a ton of these mini tart pans, but if you have an 8-inch tart pan, you can use that instead.

Also, you can make these ahead of time! They are perfect for Valentine’s Day, which is next week. You can whip these mini tarts up let’s say on Sunday night and let them hang out in the fridge until Wednesday. Your Valentine will love them!
