Chocolate cream tart is a recipe selected by Kim of Scrumptious Photography for TWD this week. I knew from the start that the tart is going to be too chocolatey for me, so I decided to make only a quarter of the recipe using two mini tart pans. But I still prepared a full batch of chocolate tart shell dough, which I intend to use the leftover for another recipe.
The tart shells turned out to be quite brittle after baking. I had a hard time trying to get them out of the pans, and I accidentally broke one of the tart shells. Unwilling to give up, I continued to assemble the remaining tart with chocolate cream and whipped cream. In the midst of transferring the tart (using my bare hands) from kitchen counter to a side table where I was supposed to take pictures, the tart gave way and dropped on the floor! The next thing I knew, my greedy pooch rushed over and gobbled up the whole tart in 2 seconds! Judging from the look on her face, she must be thinking that the tart was really delicious. ;-)
Fortunately I still have 3 quarter of the tart dough left in the fridge. So I decided to bake the tart shells in the form of flat cookies base instead. And I also make the chocolate cream slightly thicker by cooking the custard a little longer, so that I could pipe the cream on the cookies base. Then the tart was decorated with some rose water flavored-whipped cream and cocoa powder.
There you have it, my version of chocolate cream tart! Head over to Kim's blog if you want to give the recipe a try!
