Chocolate Tart Recipe

After a very long time I tried something sweet in the kitchen, thanks to my new job I hardly get any time to try something new or read any new book.
Ingredients
For the Crust
  • 2 cups Marie biscuits crumbs short bread, chocolate or any kind of cookie
  • 7 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
For Chocolate Filling
  • 14 ounces dark chocolate, cut into chunks – plus a handful for garnish I used 70% cocoa chips
  • 10 ounces heavy whipping cream
  • 5 tablespoons butter, cubed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
Chocolate Tart
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 11′ ¬†tart pan with non stick spray.

  2. Crush biscuits into a fine consistency. You can used a food processor but I put them in a ziploc bag and crush with a rolling pin.

  3. Combine crumbs with 7 tablespoons melted butter and 1/3 cup sugar. Press into tart pan.

  4. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Completely cool.

  5. Add chocolate chunks to large mixing bowl and top with 5 tablespoons cubed butter and 1/4 teaspoon salt.

  6. Heat the 10 ounces of heavy cream in microwave safe container for 2 minutes and 30 seconds.  (I just use my measuring cup).

  7. Pour over the chocolate and butter. Do not stir. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit for 5 minutes.

  8. Using a wire whisk, mix until smooth.

  9. Pour into cooled biscuit crust and spread evenly with spatula.

  10. Cool for two hours in refrigerator or overnight.

  11. Brush top with 1 teaspoon1 vegetable oil for a shiny appearance if desired. Top with additional chopped chocolate, caramel sauce if desired.
