Chocolate tart

A chocolate tart is a dessert that consists of a chocolate shell filled with a chocolate ganache or chocolate custard. The tart can be made with either dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or white chocolate.

The first chocolate tart recipe appeared in a French cookbook in 1692. The recipe consisted of a chocolate shell filled with a chocolate custard. The tart was then garnished with shaved chocolate.

In 1868, another chocolate tart recipe appeared in an English cookbook. This recipe called for a chocolate shell to be filled with a chocolate ganache. The ganache was made by mixing chocolate and cream together.

Advice

When making a chocolate tart, it is important to ensure that all of your ingredients are of the highest quality. Using high quality butter and chocolate will give you a richer and smoother texture in your tart. Additionally, be sure to use fresh eggs and cream, as these ingredients help to create a light, fluffy texture. When it comes to baking the tart, be sure to pre-bake the tart shell for about 10 minutes before adding your chocolate filling, as this will help to prevent the tart from becoming soggy. Finally, it is also important to allow your tart to cool fully before serving, as this will help to ensure that the tart has a nice, firm texture.
