I decided to make a tart again this past weekend. I am in a tart making mode, once you start to make them you can't stop. They taste too good.
This time I bought the dough because I wasn't going through that melting buisness again.
I chose to do a chocolate tart, something I have never attempted before but I figured what better time than the present.
Strawberries and chocolate...you can't go wrong here folks.
Melt the chocolate in some heavy cream and add some eggs
pour in the crust and bake
decorate with whipped cream, strawberries and more chocolate
I was surprised how light the chocolate mixture was once baked. It was smooth, mousse like and custard like all at the same time. But don't let that fool you, it is still very rich, and if thats wrong...I don't want to be right. Not one bit.
Plus strawberries are healthy right?
Chocolate Tart with Berries:
1 Frozen/ pre-made pie crust
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup milk
10 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt

In a sauce pan, simmer milk and cream. Once warm, add the chocolate and stir until dissovled. Add sugar and mix again until dissovled. Take off of heat.
In a small bowl, beat the eggs and then add 1/3 of the chocolate mixture to the eggs stiring constantly. Then add the egg chocolate mixture back into the sauce pan and stir.
Pour the chocolate into the tart pan with unbaked pie crust and bake at 325 for 50 minutes. Let cool.
Add whip cream to top and cut strawberries to top and decorate.
