Day 23 - Strawberry & Chocolate Tartelettes



Things are getting more and more hectic in the run up to Christmas, so quick sugary pick-me-ups are the order of the day! 

If you've been reading my blog you will know that I am a fan of strawberry tarts & tartelettes. Add some warm chocolate ganache et voil√†, you have an awesome dessert. Go one step further & dollop on some extra thick double cream and you are in a chocolatey heaven! The tartelettes were gone in seconds, I could barely wait to take pictures!



The chocolate ganache I used is a mix of single cream and dark chocolate, as it was used as a base to ice a cake but the traditional recipe is made with equal quantities of double cream and dark chocolate. Click here for an example recipe. The key to a good ganache is to use good quality chocolate, don't bother with the value brands!


Well I'm off to get back to preparing, I hope you guys are more organised than me!

Peace & Love

  1. Baily,

    That looks great. I think I am going to have to look into making it.

    I am not organized either and am still preparing. Tomorrow is slated for the last minute preparations.

    Hope you have a very Merry Christmas.
