A buttery crust filled with a with a rich and smooth dark chocolate ganache makes these tarts a decadent, amazing dessert.
This year I’m hosting Christmas for the first time in my life. I’ll have eight people sleeping under one roof. I’m still not sure how I’ll pull off cooking for eight in my tiny English oven, but that’s another story. I want a really big dessert spread, so this week I’ve been testing tart recipes. I created this one for my little boy who’s not into complicated desserts. He loves ganache so this was a no brainier and the penguin chocolates were a real treat. That said, they can easily be topped with whipped cream, chocolate shavings or even nothing at all.
These tarts are really simple to make. If you buy ready made crust, it would take no time at all, but I promise the home-made crust is worth the added effort!
Here are some things you’ll need to make them similar to mine. I’ve provided links below:
A mini pie pan & Round Double sided cookie cutters (I like the double sided ones because it’s like two sets in one & the single sided ones cost about the same). You can get them both on my Amazon Shop here on Erren’s Kitchen.
My penguins are pre-made, but I’ve seen similar chocolate molds here if you want to make some yourself.
