TWD: Soft Chocolate and Raspberry Tart


I am at a loss for words this week. When I think of this dessert, only one word comes to mind - DELICIOUS. I guess I could pull out the thesaurus and come up with a few other words for you. How about mouthwatering? Or maybe even scrumptious? Ooooh, tempting! Yes, this tart is all those things and more.

The tart starts with Dorie's wonderful sweet tart crust. You could just give me the crust and I would be a happy lady. But, instead of an empty crust, this is filled with juicy raspberries and a wonderful chocolate ganache. Then, as if that isn't good enough, it is topped with a dollop of fresh whipped cream. Are you drooling yet?


We ate this warm out of the oven because, honestly, we couldn't wait. It is SOOOOO good! We also had a little bit cold from the fridge and it was good that way, too. I don't think there is a bad way to eat a chocolate raspberry tart!

Thank you, thank you, thank you to Rachelle of Mommy, I'm Hungry! for hosting this week. The recipe, which you know you want, can be found at her blog!

I'll take all those adjectives and raise you a FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC too! I wasn't sure how much I'd love this tart since I'm not a fan of mushy fruit but I really LOVED this tart. Glad you enjoyed it too!

Your tart looks amazing! I'm glad it was such a hit around there. (I think Dorie's tart crust is the best recipe in her book)
