Ingredients

Crust

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup confectioner sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 stick butter ( 1/2 cup) of frozen grated unsalted butter
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1-3 tablespoons cold water

Filling

  • 2 cups hot cream
  • 1 cup chocolate chunks
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Topping

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh raspberries dusted with 2 Tablespoons of confectioner sugar

Instructions

  1. To make the crust: In a large bowl, place the flour, sugar, cocoa powder and pinch of salt. Use a whisk to whisk the dry ingredients together until well blended.
  2. Add the frozen grated butter into the flour-cocoa mixture and use a fork to blend it well—you don't want to mash the butter, you want to toss it in the flour-cocoa mixture so it’s evenly coated.

  3. Add the beaten egg to the mixture and a tablespoon of water. Use the same fork to blend the crust together. If it feels dry and not holding its shape, add a tablespoon more of water and mix it in using the fork.

  4. Gather up the dough with your hands and wrap it in plastic wrap. Chill the dough for at least 30 minutes until it hardens.
  5. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  6. Take 2 sheets of parchment paper and roll out the chocolate crust in between those 2 sheets of parchment paper (to avoid any sticking), or push the counter with flour and roll it out into an 1/8th of an inch thick.
  7. Cut out - inch rounds of the dough, and place each round on a mini tart mold, and press the dough well into the sides and corners. Or you can place the rolled out crust into a 9 inch round standard tart plate, and press the dough well into the edges and corners.

  8. Bake the tarts for 12-15 mins until cooked through, or for 25-30 mins if making a large tart.
  9. Make the filling in the meantime.
  10. Place the hot cream into your Vitamix and add in the chocolate chunks. Blend for seconds until smooth.

  11. While the machine is running, add in a pinch of salt and the vanilla. Blend for a couple more seconds.
  12. Fill the crust shells with the silky filling and chill the tart for at least 30 mins, or an hour and a half for a large tart.
  13. Remove the tarts from the fridge before serving and top them with the sugar-dusted raspberries.
