Variations and substitutions are a great way to switch up the flavors in this recipe and create a unique twist on the classic white chocolate fruit tart. Here are some substitution ideas to try:

– Fruit: You can substitute or add in your favorite fruits to make this recipe your own. Some delicious options are blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, peaches, mangoes or passionfruit. You can even mix it up with some exotic fruits like dragonfruit or lychee.

– Chocolate: If you don’t have white chocolate chips or prefer a darker flavor, feel free to substitute them with milk chocolate or dark chocolate chips instead for a delicious chocolatey twist.

– Filling: For an even creamier filling, use a combination of both light cream cheese and regular cream cheese instead of just one. Alternatively, you can also make a vegan version by using non-dairy cream cheese OR omitting the cream cheese altogether and using whipped coconut cream as your base.

– Infusions: To give your white chocolate filling an extra punch of flavor and complexity, consider infusing the white chocolate with loose-leaf jasmine tea for a floral touch, passionfruit pulp for a tropical kick or raspberry puree for a berry blast!

– No-bake option: If you’re looking for an easy no-bake option or want to keep your kitchen cool during warm weather months, you can also make mini fruit tarts using pre-made tart shells OR mini graham cracker crusts filled with Cool Whip and topped with fresh fruit.

By experimenting with different combinations of flavors and textures, you’ll be able to create new variations that will suit your personal taste preferences perfectly!

When it comes to making these white chocolate fruit tarts recipe, there are a few options for preparing in advance. If you’re in a hurry and want to save time on the day of serving, we suggest preparing the tart crusts ahead of time. The crust can be tightly wrapped in plastic wrap and stored at room temperature for up to three days or frozen for up to two weeks.

Assembling the tarts is an easy task that can also be made in advance. Once assembled, these tarts can be stored in the refrigerator for up to two days without compromising their freshness. When storing them, wrap them with plastic wrap or store them in an airtight container.

If you’re making a large batch of these delicious tarts, another option is freezing them. To freeze assembled tarts, wrap each individual tart with plastic wrap and store them together in a tightly sealed freezer bag. Frozen tarts will last for up to three months.

When reheating, it’s important to keep in mind that these tarts are best served cold or at room temperature. However, if you prefer your tart warm, preheat your oven to 350°F and bake your tarts for 5-7 minutes until they are slightly warmed.

In summary, these versatile tarts can be made ahead of time or frozen for later consumption with ease. Properly storing and reheating these treats will guarantee the perfect experience every time you enjoy one!

Tips for Perfect Results

Achieving the perfect result from a recipe can be daunting, especially for novice bakers. Here are some tips to help you make the best white chocolate fruit tarts that you will ever taste!

1. Mix the Cream Cheese and Butter Well

To ensure your filling is smooth and silky in texture and uniform in color, mix the cream cheese and butter well. Ensure the butter is softened, so it easily blends with the cream cheese. Softened butter will also enable you to whisk everything together quicker with less effort. A poorly mixed filling will have lumps and uneven texture, which can compromise the overall quality of the tart.

2. Lightly Grease Your Tart Pan

Using cooking sprays or rubbing a small amount of softened butter all over your tart pan in a thin layer can prevent your crust from sticking to the pan after baking. This simple step will help ensure that your white chocolate fruit tarts come out perfectly formed.

3. Use Quality Ingredients

White chocolate, like any other ingredient, comes in different qualities, and not all white chocolates will work for this recipe equally well. It is recommended that you choose white chocolate chips made with superior quality cocoa butter, as these melt uniformly without clumping when melted with the heavy cream.

4. Stripe Your Shell

If you want an aesthetic appeal on your crust before filling with your delicious fruity mixture, take a pastry brush dipped in soft food coloring or extracts of different colors such as raspberry or jasmine tea to stripe your shell.

5. Chill Before Serving

Before serving your white chocolate fruit tarts, chill them in a refrigerator for at least an hour. A chilled tart has a firmer crust that can hold its shape better while slicing.

These tips above are sure-fire ways to achieve the best result possible for a recipe that has set hearts racing around the world – now it’s up to you!

Bottom Line

In conclusion, these white chocolate fruit tarts are a perfect blend of flavors that will satisfy your sweet tooth and leave you wanting more. With the right ingredients and easy-to-follow instructions, you can make these tarts without any hassle. They are the ultimate indulgence for parties, special events, or a weekend treat for yourself.

White Chocolate Fruit Tarts

White Chocolate Fruit Tarts Recipe

This is a beautiful dessert that I serve when hosting a bridal or wedding shower for friends or for ladies' luncheons. Full of fresh fruits and a light creamy white chocolate filling, these are always a big hit and I get plenty of "oohs and ahhs" when I bring them out. If you prefer, you can use the store-bought spongy yellow tart shells from the grocery store, but I usually make my own if I have the time. The type of tart pans you need will make a very flat spongy cake layer with an indentation for spreading filling (I use the flan pans from Pampered Chef).Prep time also includes cooling and chilling times as is a very rough guess. Cook time accounts for the baking of the tart shells and also some time for melting the white chocolate and heating the glaze. I prefer a thinner layer of the white chocolate filling, but I have sometimes doubled the amount upon request.

Servings: 2 large round tarts
Calories: 2728kcal


  • 1 (18 ounce) box yellow cake mix (OR 5 cups American-style yellow cake mix batter from your favorite recipe) or (18 ounce) box white cake mix, plus ingredients to prepare batter according to package directions (OR 5 cups American-style yellow cake mix batter from your favorite recipe)


  • 1 (12 ounce) package white chocolate chips, melted & cooled slightly
  • 8 ounces cream cheese or 8 ounces light cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup Cool Whip, thawed or 1/4 cup sweetened whipped cream

Fruit topping

  • 8 ounces fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1 cup fresh pineapple chunk (or use canned, drained)
  • 1 can mandarin orange, drained well
  • 4 kiwi fruits, peeled & sliced


  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar


  • You may choose to purchase 2 large flat round yellow spongy tart shells from your grocery store instead of making your own (often sold near fresh fruit).
  • IF MAKING TART SHELLS:If you do want to make your own tart shells, you will need 2 round tart pans (such as the flan pans from Pampered Chef) as well as 2 circles of parchment paper (or wax paper), cut to fit inside the pans.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spray the tart pans with nonstick spray or grease lightly and set the parchment circles in the base of each.
  • Either use you favorite yellow cake batter recipe or a box mix and prepare the batter according to the package directions or your recipe.
  • Pour only 2 1/2 cups of the batter into each pan- there will be some extra batter if you have used a mix (Save the extra batter for another use or discard).
  • Bake both tarts together on the same oven rack for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Let cool 10 minutes upright before removing from pans (loosen edges with a knife first, then flip over onto a wire rack),but don't pull off the parchment until the tart shells have cooled completely.
  • IF USING PURCHASED TART SHELLS START HERE: Prepare the glaze by combining the pineapple juice,lemon juice,cornstarch,and sugar in a small saucepan.
  • Bring to a gentle boil, stirring constantly, over medium heat.
  • Boil 2 minutes or until thickened.
  • Let cool completely- can be made ahead and chilled, but make sure this is at room temperature before attempting to spread on fruit.
  • For the Filling: If you haven't already done so, melt the white chocolate chips according to the package directions (I highly recommend using a double boiler and avoiding the microwave for this) and let cool slightly.
  • Combine melted& slightly cooled white chocolate with the room temperature cream cheese and the Cool Whip or sweetened whipped cream.
  • If you prefer a thicker layer of filling, you can double the recipe.
  • Spread evenly into the base of the cooled tart shells using a cake spatula.
  • Have your fruit all ready to go and make sure it is not dripping wet.
  • Layer fruit in rings on top of the creamy filling, starting from the outermost edge, alternating pieces of fruit decoratively as desired to create colorful spirals of fruit, filling each tart shell completely.
  • You may have extra fruit left over or you may need more of a particular type of fruit, depending upon you preferences.
  • Brush glaze over fruit using a pastry brush.
  • Store the completed tarts, covered with plastic wrap, in the refrigerator.
  • Each tart serves about 10-12 people.
