Lemon Bites

On Christmas Eve, we had a menu of appetizers/finger foods. I wanted something sweet on the table, but didn't want anything too heavy. I made these little lemon bites, and they were fantastic. I forgot to take pictures that night, but will next time I make them.

These are easy as can be. They are quite sweet, so most people don't eat more than one or two at a time, despite the small size.

Lemon Bites

1 jar of lemon curd*
1 package of mini phyllo shells (or any other prepared mini shell - doesn't have to be phyllo)
Melted chocolate (I just used chocolate chips)
Berries for garnish

Directions

-Thaw phyllo shells if you've had them in the freezer.
-Melt chocolate (you could use pretty much any chocolate here) and brush a coating around each of the shells. Set in the freezer for 5 minutes, or fridge for about 10, for chocolate to harden.
-Once the chocolate has hardened, fill each shell with curd.
-Top with berries of choice.

*One full jar of curd will actually be enough for two boxes of shells (30 total).
