You will also need a 13-inch tart pan (I suggest using a ceramic one) and a glass with a flat wide bottom to help shape the crust. The Chocolate Ganache Tart will keep in the fridge in an airtight container for up to three days.

Chocolate Ganache Tart

By Genevieve Jerome | Fitty Foodlicious

Chocolate is one of the most popular desserts to eat on Valentine’s Day and there's no better way to show your love than to make your honey-pie Chocolate Ganache Tart. It’s way easier than you think and can be made ahead of time before Valentine’s Day with just a little help from Raley's.

Serves: 2-4

Prep time:

Cook time:

Ingredients:

  • 2-cups Raley’s chocolate graham cracker crumbs
  • 8-tablespoons grass-fed butter, melted
  • 1-pound bag of Raley’s semisweet or dark chocolate chips
  • 1-teaspoon Raley’s ground espresso or ground dark roast coffee
  • 4-tablespoons grass-fed butter
  • 1-teaspoon Raley’s vanilla extract
  • fresh berries for garnish
  • fresh mint for garnish
  • Raley’s powdered sugar, optional

Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350-degrees
  2. In a small bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs and the melted butter until combine. Crumbs should be slightly dry.
  3. Press the crumb crust mixture into the 13-inch tart pan. You can also use a glass to do this more easily to flatten the crumbs mixture into the tart pan (See photos.)
  4. Place the prepared tart pan on a silicone lined baking sheet and bake at 350-degrees for 10-minutes. After 10-minutes, remove the tart pan from the oven and let cool for at-least 5-minute.
  5. Place the semisweet chocolate in a glass bowl and set aside.
  6. In a medium saucepan, mix the butter and heavy cream on low heat until combined. Do not let the heavy cream curdle. You’ll know the heavy cream is ready when it starts to boil.
  7. Immediately pour the heavy and butter mixture over the chocolate and combine. Use a spatula to combine the chocolate and heavy cream mixture. Add in the espresso and vanilla extract and combine everything again. This step takes time, be patient with it. The chocolate will be nice and smooth when everything is combined.
  8. Pour the chocolate mixture slowly into the 13-inch chocolate tart crust and refrigerate it for at-least two hours (2-4 hours is ideal.)
  9. Top the Chocolate Ganache Tart with fresh strawberries, raspberries and fresh sprigs of mint.
  10. Sprinkle with confectioners sugar or fresh whipped cream just before serving.
  11. The longer the Chocolate Ganache Tart sits in the fridge, the easier it will be to slice.
