Tips for making the Chocolate Raspberry Tart:

Ingredient Tips:

Only a few ingredients are needed for this dessert:

  • Eight pre-rolled crusts in 4″ tart pans. I recommend our Sweet Pie Crust recipe.
  • Whisk together the sugar, cocoa powder and salt
  • Bring the eggs and half & half to room temperature before starting the recipe.
  • Use the freshest raspberries you can find.

Mixing the chocolate filling:

The success in making these Valentine’s Day tarts is in the mixing of the chocolate filling. I recommend sifting the cocoa powder to ensure the batter is not lumpy. Also, use a whisk for mixing to ensure the wet ingredients are well incorporated.

Filling the tart shells:

Place three fresh raspberries into each of the tart shells. Add more if you want a stronger raspberry flavor.

Use a large glass measuring cup to add the filling to the tart shells. The batter is very thin and this technique will make pouring easier to control.

    I made these and put stars on top for our New Years celebration. I tasted one before serving and they are delish. My guests will be pleased.

    These tarts were really good. I like a chocolate tart that is baked versus chocolate cream tarts that taste like pudding.
