TWD Rewind- Tarte Noire

This week we were able to do a rewind for Tuesday's with Dorie.
I went to a dinner party earlier this month and was in charge of dessert, so I decided to make Tarte Noire. This particular tart was chosen back in July by Dharmagirl, who blogs over at bliss: towards a delicious life and you can find the recipe on her blog, HERE. This tart is basically a tart shell filled with chocolate ganache. I used Scharffen Berger- a combination of bittersweet and semi-sweet chocolate.

I made this in my rectangular tart pan and also made a fruit tart, filled with this vanilla pastry cream and decorated with kiwis, raspberries, and pomegranate arils. Christmas spirit portrayed in the colors, of course. I wanted to please the chocolate lovers and the fruit lovers too.

This tart was beautiful and rich. Everyone ate a small piece and enjoyed it.

Go over to Tuesdays with Dorie and see what everyone else made for the rewind today!

That looks gorgeous! I seriously thought about making this one again this week, since it was a huge hit with my girls. I'm sure it will make another appearance here. Your fruit tart sounds delicious, too.

This is a beauty. I have yet to make it and I am not sure why, I haven't. Great choice to inspire me.

Love square tarts. Make it seem so elegant when cut in slices rather than wedges.

I remember this was really really good.

Looks just perfect!!
