Just in time for Valentine's Day

Marin French Cheese Company offers you this sweet and luscious recipe for Valentines Day. It is very and quick simple to prepare. The main ingredient, Triple Crème Brie, is luscious and creamy. This international award winning cheese pairs lovingly with Champagne, strawberries and chocolate. It has a slightly sweet irresistibly creamy texture. And, the Brie is perfect with fresh fruit and Champagne.

1. Arrange tartlet shells on a tray. Fill tartlet shells three-fourths full with Rouge et Noir Triple Crème Brie. (With or without rind).

2. Place chocolate pieces in a small microwaveable dish. Microwave on HIGH 15 seconds, stirring until melted. Spoon melted chocolate over Brie. Or, transfer melted chocolate to a plastic bag. Cut off corner of bag and pipe over Brie to cover. Let cool.

3. To garnish, remove rind from remaining Brie. Place softened Brie into pastry bag fitted with star tip. Pipe star on each tartlet. Chill tartlets up to 2 days or serve at room temperature within 6 hours.
