Mediterranean Chocolate Tart Recipe 

Mediterranean Chocolate Tart - Tarte au ChocolatLooking for a decadent, wonderfully delicious, chocolate tart recipe .....look no further. It's really quick and easy to make, and then, if necessary, can be stored in the fridge in its tin for a couple of days till ready to serve.
I made it for the great party we had to christen our new outside kitchen, and it went down really well.
You only need a small portion as it is very rich. Great served with a big bowl of lightly whipped double cream that has been flavoured with a little amaretto liquer.

Mediterranean - Chocolate Tart

Chocolate Tart Recipe Ingredients  

(This makes a party size tart that will easily feed 15+ people, if you want one to serve 6-8 people just half the recipe and reduce the tin size)

  • A little melted butter for greasing the tin
  • 200g small almond macaroon biscuits, or use little Amaretti biscuits
  • 650g best quality dark chocolate
  • 7 tablespoons liquid glucose
  • 7 tablespoons rum or I sometimes use brandy
  • 770ml double cream at room temperature
  • You will need a 10"/25cm high sided (or 7"/25cm for the smaller one) cake tin that is lined with a circle of foil and then evenly greased with the melted butter including the sides of the tin.
  • About 6 tablespoons of rum, or brandy for soaking the macaroons

Chocolate Tart Recipe Method
  1. Take approx 3/4 of the biscuits, crush well, and sprinkle them evenly over the base of the tin.
  2. Melt the chocolate with the glucose and rum/brandy by gently buzzing in the microwave, removing and stirring regularily, or in a bowl over a pan of simmering water - make sure the bowl is not touching the water. Keep stirring till completely melted.
  3. Allow to cool for a few minutes.
  4. Whisk the cream in another bowl until it starts to just slightly thicken.
  5. Fold half of this into the chocolate, then fold this into the rest of the cream.
  6. Pile this mixture into your lined and greased tin and evenly spread it out so that it is as flat as possible, and cover with cling film.
  7. Put this into the fridge to set....about 3-4 hours. (This can happily sit in the chill for 2 days - great if you want to make ahead of time.)
  8. Bring out of the fridge about an hour before serving for it to acclimatize.
  9. To serve, run a sharp knife around the outside edge of the tart.
  10. Then turn it over carefully and tip it out on to a serving plate, it actually comes out quite easily.
  11. Carefully soak the remaining macaroons/amaretti biscuits in the chosen liquor and arrange around the edge of the tart with a couple in them in the middle....see picture.
  12. Serve immediately with whipped cream.
