Chocolate Tart Recipe

Chocolate Tart Recipe - The Inspired Room

Happy New Year, friends! I was recently invited by Samsung to make one of their Club des Chefs recipes by Eric Frechon (a 3 Michelin-star chef and holder of the prestigious MOF title, which is a rare and supreme honor attributed to only the profession’s most talented chefs). I’ll admit I was a little intimidated at the thought! But when I found out the recipe was for a Chocolate Tart I couldn’t wait to take on the challenge because … CHOCOLATE.

My girls and I had so much fun making our tart! It didn’t take long at all to put together. While we did have one teeny tiny incident attempting our first crust from scratch, it was our own fault (note the Chef Eric’s wise and experienced recommendation in his recipe to use pie weights or beans to keep the crust from slipping if you make the crust from scratch, so don’t try to leave that step out, ha). Fortunately we recovered and our finished tart turned out so beautifully, definitely beyond our expectations!

Check out our little video, above!

If you want to garnish your tart, try a dusting of powdered sugar for a snowy effect, mint leaves for a little color and pretty texture, or even berries, whipped cream or chocolate shavings!

This chocolate tart is really easy to make and so rich and delicious, you could whip one together this week for a New Year’s party or for any gathering and be everyone’s favorite person!

Find the original delicious Chocolate Tart recipe here! NOTE: This recipe is not listed in U.S. measurements, so here’s my simple recommendations for an adaptation, below:

Crust:

Use your favorite brand of pre-made pie shell for a quick shortcut! Marie Callender is delicious and easy. Bake according to directions on package for a no-bake pie.

Filling:

Melt 10-12 ounces Dark Chocolate Baking Chunks (67% cacao).
Add about 2 Tablespoons of butter and stir to melt.
Remove from heat.
Pour in about 10 ounces of heavy cream (300 ml) and stir.
Pour chocolate mixture into crust.
Put tart in fridge 30 minutes or until firm.
