Chocolate Tart

This chocolate tart is literally To Die For! Step-by-step method how to make the perfect chocolate tart. We use a blind baked sweet pastry crust, a mixture of melted dark chocolate, evaporated milk and cream which gives this chocolate tart recipe an incredible taste and texture.

Ingredients (serves 8)

  • 500g dark cocolate, at least 64% cocoa solids
  • 3 eggs
  • 150ml single cream
  • 2x170g evaporated milk
  • 200g Baked-blind sweet short crust pastry
  • Icing sugar to decorate

Equipment

  • Loose-bottom flan ring, 25cm
  • 1 large mixing bowl
  • 1 medium bowl (for melting chocolate)
  • Medium pot (for bain marie)
  • Saucepan

  3. Break the chocolate into small pieces and put into a china bowl. Set over a pan of boiling water and let it melt slowly on a very low heat. Cover and leave to melt for 5 minutes, then take it off the heat and stir.
  4. Whisk the eggs together in a large bowl.
  5. Pour the cream and evaporated milk into a saucepan and bring to the boil. Pour this onto the eggs and whisk together.
  6. Strain the milk and egg mixture over the chocolate. Transfer the mixture to a bigger bowl and mix well.
  7. Pour this into the blind-baked tart case.
  8. Place the tart in the oven. Shut the door and immediately turn the oven off. Leave the tart in the oven for 40-45 minutes.
  9. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely (about 1 1/2 hours).
  10. Sprinkle some icing sugar and some chocolate curls (optional).
  11. Serve in thin slices.
