Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1 cup heavy cream (for ganache)
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter (for ganache)

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, combine the flour, cold cubed butter, sugar, cocoa powder, and salt. Pulse until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  2. Add 1/4 cup of heavy cream and pulse until the dough comes together.
  3. Shape the dough into a disk, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  4. Roll out the chilled dough and press it into a tart pan. Trim any excess dough and prick the bottom with a fork. Chill for another 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  6. Bake the tart shell for 15-20 minutes, or until it’s set and lightly golden. Let it cool.
  7. For the ganache, heat 1 cup of heavy cream until it simmers, then pour it over the finely chopped chocolate and butter. Let it sit for a minute, then stir until smooth.
  8. Pour the ganache into the cooled tart shell and refrigerate for at least 2 hours to set.
  9. Once set, garnish with cocoa powder or chocolate shavings, if desired.
  10. Slice, serve, and savor the decadence!
