Don't hurt me. But this is all love. Just pure unadulterated chocolate love.
You know that Veggie Quiche I just posted before this - this was the left over base from that. See that small ball here at the bottom - just that. Well, after all that effort I put to make the base, there was no question leaving it to rot.
I initially, genuinely wanted to do a berry tart - and custard is usually a good filling for berry tarts - or a cream cheese base. But, I had neither of those things at home. But it is a known fact that one thing is always stocked up at my place - Chocolate.
So, on a whim, this was what I could come up with. A little chocolate ganache. A little tart base. A lot of love.
Roll out the dough and cover two ramekins with a thin coat of the dough. Bake with a little weight on top so they don't rise up in the center. A simple steel cup does the trick for me here. Bake in a preheated oven at 350F for about 10 mins or until you see them done. Go ahead, prick with a fork if you need to - no one's watching!
And they're done!
Pour some lite chocolate ganache (use half and half or just milk too) into the cups and let it sit in the warm oven (oven should be switched off) for about 10 mins. Then move it to the fridge and let it set for about 30 mins. Don't let the chocolate cool too much and harden up. You want the center to still be in a liquid form but the top would have set. You'll see why I say this.
Once its set, just gently pick the cup out of the ramekin and place on a serving plate.
That's almost ready to eat by itself. But, there's always room for improvement!
And so ladies and gentlemen, I present to you - one of the best desserts ever. A simple chocolate ganache tart topped with strawberries and drizzled with chocolate sauce.
So, call the family, get the spoons and share the love.
Confess...don't you like it? Give me a 'yes' and I'll go away.
Well..I know you want more.
Enjoy. Peace out!
