Chocolate tart filling

Recipe adapted from this blogpost

We had been invited to a friend’s place for dinner and I was in charge of dessert. I had a tart pastry languishing in the freezer and it took me 10 mins max to whip up the filling and pop the pie in the oven! If you’re less lazy than I am, the recipe above also teaches you how to make the pastry. Funny story, I got it in my head that there would be too much filling in this recipe, so I bought and opened another pastry before realising that there the chocolate filling was only JUST enough for one tart. So I ended up throwing together a custard for tart numero dos so nothing would be wasted. Custard recipe’s on its way too!

Ingredients

200g good quality dark chocolate, broken into small pieces
150g cream
2 egg yolks
50g sugar

Method

– Preheat your oven to 120 degrees celcius.
– Place chocolate into TMX bowl and grate for 6 secs/speed 8.
– Add cream, heat for 6 mins/90 degrees/speed 2.
– Add egg yolks and sugar, mix for 1 min/speed 3.

I decorated the top with some mandarin segments to hide the cracks, but you can also dust some cocoa powder on top if you like!

  3. Hullo I am reading avidly through your blog as I am a new Thermomix owner. Just one bit of feedback for you – most recipes you don’t say at the end how happy you were with the completed dish. Occasionally you seem to talk about ones that didn’t turn out so great but the others I am left wondering if you were pleased with result. It would be nice to have a comment from you at the end about how much you liked it or how the recipe was received and whether you’d make it again. :}

      Hi there,

      Thanks for your comment and I hope you are enjoying your TMX! Will definitely clarify this in the future but generally I will use all of the recipes on this blog again, except the ones where I have said I was disappointed.

      All the best with your TMX adventures!

      xx
