Mmmmm.... chocolate! You just can't go wrong with chocolate. The selection for this week appealed to the chocolate lover in me and I was very happy with it!
Dorie says that this tarts next of kin is a chocolate cream pie, but this is a fancier version. It starts with a chocolate shortbread crust that isn't too sweet and that I actually really enjoyed. It is then topped with DELICIOUS chocolate pastry cream that was out of this world. I licked every last bit of it out of the bowl. There was no way I was going to waste any of it! The tart finally gets a topping of fresh whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Oh my yum!
I thought this tart was incredibly delicious, although it was also incredibly rich. It didn't stop our dinner group on Sunday from practically finishing it off, though!
