Here’s how you make it!


  • 12 sheets (one package) phyllo or strudel dough
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 12 pieces DOVE® Dark Chocolate PROMISES®
  • 3 large egg whites
  • Pinch cream of tartar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 cups prepared lemon curd

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Place 1 sheet of phyllo dough on counter (cover rest in damp cloth and plastic wrap). Very lightly brush sheet with butter. Cut sheet into quarters and stack on top of one another. Transfer stack to muffin tin, pressing dough into sides and bottom of cup. Repeat process with remaining dough. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Remove from oven.

Place 1 Dove Dark Chocolate Promise on bottom of each tart shell, return to oven, and bake for 5 more minutes. Remove from oven and cool tart shells in pan.

Prepare meringue by beating egg whites and cream of tartar in a clean bowl until frothy. Begin adding sugar 1 tablespoon at a time until egg whites are opaque and shiny. Reheat oven to 400°F.

Spoon equal amounts of lemon curd into tart shells. Divide meringue among tarts, covering filling completely. Bake in a preheated oven at 400°F for 5 minutes. Hold at room temperature until ready to serve.
