Chocolate Tarte

Chocolate Tarte

This chocolate tarte is not for the faint of heart. A dream made of chocolate. Juicy, moist, and a crispy shell with no frills.

To be honest, this tart wasn’t planned at all. In addition, it was the first attempt to bake the tart in this way. But shortcrust pastry and lots of chocolate are the components of our recipe for happiness today.

We were invited to dinner at our friends at the weekend. To be honest, the invitation was that we were all invited to their home and everyone was told that Sonja and Basti will be the chefs on that evening.

Fabulous isn’t it? 🙂 We are invited to a party to cook there. But of course we’ve accepted the challenge and came up with this delicious, easy-to-prepare chocolate tart.

The background idea here was that we didn’t want to be in the kitchen all afternoon just to be able to present the perfect menu for the evening.

Rather, we tried to make dinner with friends as easy as possible.

We really prepared many of our classics for this. Fresh hummus, pumpkin hummus, beetroot hummus.
The main course was our Pearl Couscous Salad with Honey-Glazed Salmon.

And that’s always really a hit. It is super easy to prepare and you have time to talk to everyone without being stressful in the kitchen. And as a dessert we’ve served this wonderful chocolate tarte.

This is really quick, it only takes a little patience for the chocolate to harden. Then it can be served.

The whole tarte was topped with a little sea salt and chilli threads. And I tell you that really made a difference. Incredible what a bit of topping, if you can call it that, can make out. You should definitely try that.
