Dessert Recipe: Chocolate Raspberry Tart

Chocolate Raspberry Tart
  • Pre-baked pie/tart crust
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 4 ounces bittersweet (not unsweetened) or semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 2 cups of fresh raspberries
  • 1 teaspoon powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 6 tablespoons raspberry jam

Bring cream to boil in heavy small saucepan. Remove from heat. Add chocolate and whisk until melted and smooth. Transfer chocolate ganache to bowl and chill in refrigerator. After 30 minutes, whip the ganache until thick and firm until stiff peaks form.

Spread the raspberry jam, then a thick layer of the ganache to fill up almost to the edge of the crust, top with fresh raspberries. Sift the powder sugar and cocoa powder on top before serving.
