TWD: Tart Noire


For this week's Tuesday's with Dorie recipe, Dharmagirl of bliss: towards a delicious life chose Tarte Noire. Which is to say, a tart filled with silky chocolate ganache.


It doesn't get much easier than pouring ganache into a prebaked tart shell. Ganache, just three ingredients... chocolate, cream, and butter.

It's too darn bad I'm not a big fan of ganache, LOL. I don't know what it is... maybe because it leans a little too far into the dark chocolate realm for my tastes. (Milk chocolate wimp here, waving hand, fessing up.)


Oh well, my son didn't mind eating most of the four-inch tart I made. (1/8 of the ganache recipe makes the perfect amount.)

And it gets points for being so smooth and fantastic looking.

If you'd like to try one yourself, please stop by dharmagirl's blog, or check out Dorie Greenspan's book, "Baking, From my Home to Yours".

Save some for me! That ganache is just the smoothest - you'd never know that was not your favorite thing. Glad that someone important enjoyed it! :) A beautiful mini-tart, truly!

Gorgeous looking chocolate on that top and I don't like chocolate...it just looks so nice and soft and shiny and like a skating pond! Guys here loved it and it was gone in no time flat.

I love ganache, but this recipe did not sound as appealing as putting the ganache . . . on a cake! A big fat chocolate cake!

Definitely fabulous looking. I used to not like dark chocolate, and ganache was just too "not-sweet" for me. Now, I LOVE dark chocolate and love licking the ganache spoon! (But a little does go a long way.)
