This tart happened by chance. I had leftover dough from my Three Ingredient Jam Tarts, a slab of dark chocolate and some cream. Oh and a cute little bowl that I’ve been wanting to bake in. Hmmmmm.
Hello, delicious 🙂
This was just as easy as the jam tarts and requires only one step of baking. All I did was roll out the dough, press it into my bowl to create a sort of tart shell, bake it, melt the chocolate and cream together, pour it into the tart and chill. There’s absolutely no reason for it to not taste good.
It reminded me of the chocolate tarts we used to eat in college everytime we passed the Ratan Tata Institute in Colaba. Anyone else been there?
Smooth, sinful ganache and buttery pastry. Imagine if I’d just put that leftover dough back in the fridge. What a waste.
What you’ll need:
Tart dough just like the one in the Three Ingredient Jam Tarts
100 ml cream
60 gms dark chocolate
I only had enough dough left for one 5cm diameter tart, but feel free to increase the proportions if you’d like to make more.
What to do:
1. Roll out and press the dough into the tart mould or an oven-proof bowl.
2. Bake for 10 minutes in a preheated 180 C oven till cooked and golden-brown around the edges.
3. Melt the chocolate and cream in a double boiler and allow to cool and thicken.
4. Once the tart shell has cooled (guess who didn’t have the patience for this!) pour the ganache into it, smooth over the top and chill for about an hour if you’d like to eat it almost immediately. I chilled it overnight and cut into it the next morning.
Best kind of leftovers 🙂
