  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1 cup heavy cream (for ganache)
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter (for ganache)

Instructions

  3. Shape the dough into a disk, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

  6. Bake the tart shell for 15-20 minutes, or until it’s set and lightly golden. Let it cool.
  7. For the ganache, heat 1 cup of heavy cream until it simmers, then pour it over the finely chopped chocolate and butter. Let it sit for a minute, then stir until smooth.
  8. Pour the ganache into the cooled tart shell and refrigerate for at least 2 hours to set.
  9. Once set, garnish with cocoa powder or chocolate shavings, if desired.
