Mini White Chocolate Peppermint Tarts | So Cute!

Aren’t these Mini White Chocolate Peppermint Tarts so cute?! The phyllo shells are flakey and light while the white chocolate peppermint filling is creamy and the whipped cream tops it all off to add even more light sweetness. These are perfect for Christmas or just for the holiday season in general. Can you imagine serving these at a Christmas party? They’re so yummy but even better, they are so easy to make. So let’s get into it!

Main Ingredients Needed

Here are all of the ingredients you’re going to need to make these mini tarts!

  • Phyllo Shells – these can be found in the frozen section of your local grocery store. I used the brand named Athen’s.
  • White Chocolate – this starts out the creamy filling. You can absolutely use another type of chocolate here if you want (did someone say dark chocolate?).
  • Cream Cheese – just a little bit to add creaminess and a bit of tang.
  • Peppermint Extract – half of this is used in the filling and half is used in the whipped cream!
  • Heavy Whipping Cream – this starts the whipped cream! For all questions pertaining to homemade whipped cream <– see here!
  • Vanilla – this flavors the cream.
  • Powdered Sugar – this adds sweetness without weighing the whipped topping down.
  • Candy Canes – these are crushed and used as a garnish!
