Happy Valentines Day-Chocolate Ganache Tart

14 Feb

Happy Valentines Day!!!! As everyone is celebrating this day outside with a nice dinner and roses, I decided to celebrate at home baking for my friends and family. When one thinks of Valentines, the first impression that comes to mind are chocolates and roses. Well, I will let the rose giving and dinner treating to the guys out there but I will prepare dessert.

In light of this celebration, I decided to make something chocolatey since you can’t go wrong with chocolate. This time I am making a Chocolate Ganache Tart. While the dessert may be delectable and stunning, it is rather quite easy to make. To make the tart, I first made the pate sucre shell first. Next I made the ganache which goes into the shell. I heated up some cream and poured over the chocolate. I then whisked the cream and chocolate until creamy and homogenous after which I poured it into the cooled tart shells. Allow the ganache to cool and decorate with raspberries.



Ganache Filling

180g Dart Chocolate
130 ml Whipping Cream

Result: The dark chocolate gave the tart a rich, and deep chocolate taste. The ganache was silky smooth a stark contrast to the delicious tart shell. The raspberry complimented the rich chocolate with a sweetness and acidity. For chocolate lovers this is a recipe worthy to try.

Happy Valentines Day to All!!!!
