Valrhona Chocolate Tartlets

23 Aug

What a super easy treat to make! and I will show you how in 5 easy steps:

Step 1

Measure out 4 parts chocolate (I used Valrhona Equatoriale which is 55% cocoa) and 3 parts whipping cream.
[Note: After some more experimentation, 3 parts whipping cream to 4 parts chocolate gives the best consistency, you may go up to equal parts of whipping cream to chocolate and you’d still do fine]

Step 2
Heat whipping cream in a small saucepan until it just boils.

Step 3
Pour e heated whipping cream over chocolate in a bowl. (The heat from the cream will melt the chocolate)

Step 4
Using a small whisk, gradually and gently whisk chocolate and cream together in concentric circles until you achieve a smooth consistency.

Step 5
Fill tartlet shells with chocolate ganache and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes before serving. Ta-dah!

Do you dare?
– Sprinkle a little sea salt and drizzle a little olive oil over the tart before eating for an southern italian dessert twist. You won’t regret it!
– Make it look even more heavenly by dusting a light layer of icing sugar over the tartlet.
– Halve a strawberry and rest it on top of the chocolate tartlet. Coat with a glaze of a mixture of apricot jam and a little warm water for that added gloss!

Let me know how it goes guys!

[PS: Many thanks to everyone who has dropped by and left kind and encouraging words!]

Update: With the same basic chocolate ganache mixture you can also make Valrhona Chocolate Truffles check it out!

    I didn’t know it was this easy! Will surely try this— with fruits on top to deceive myself and my friends into thinking it is ultra healthy.

    Congrats on getting Freshly Pressed.

      Hi Faithsuzzette, yea i never knew it was that easy before! Hahaha what an ingenious way of disguising the tart! I always think that if you eat one once in a while it’s ok 🙂

      and thanks! this freshly pressed thing is slowly sinking in for me 🙂

    Where do you buy (or how do you make) the shells? This looks delish!!!!

    • char August 24, 2010 at 11:29 am #

      Hi Sparklingbytheway, there is a baking supplies store in Singapore that I buy the tart shells from – they are a lifesaver cos i’m a lazy baker. You can also purchase frozen sweet shortcrust pastry sheets from the supermarket 🙂

      • Caden December 11, 2011 at 11:56 am #

        Would that be phoon huat? If so then which outlet did you get the shells from? Cos I’m pretty certain I have never seen those at the simei outlet haha. Oh then again it might be another store altogether.

        Thank you.

      • char December 22, 2011 at 3:19 pm #

        Hi Caden, sorry for the late reply! Yeap I go the tart shells from phoon huat – they have it at the chip bee gardens outlet for sure and I’ve also seen it at Woodlands but if you’re nearby one is simei why not give them a call to check? I’m quite sure they would have it Tel: 6260 6180. These tart shells are a life saver!! 🙂 hee. oh and they usually display the ‘master samples’ at the cashier counter so you tell them which size of shells you want and if you want the savoury or sweet tart shells 🙂

  35. Sara August 24, 2010 at 6:16 am #

    For your Italian twist, you suggested sprinkling AND drizzling a bit of sea salt. I assume the drizzling is a different ingredient. I’m not a cook, but I’m guessing maybe it’s balsamic? Please advise. Thanks! These look great!

    • char August 24, 2010 at 11:39 am #

      Hi Sara, oh dear! my apologies about that! I’ve amended the post it should be a lil drizzle of olive oil. I know it sounds weird but the salt, olive oil and chocolate REALLY go very well together. It’s a lil inspiration i got from the A16 cookbook (A16 is an AWESOME italian restaurant in San Francisco)

    it looks so good!!! I want!! where do you get the tarlet shells??

    • char August 24, 2010 at 9:16 pm #

      Hi Summer, I got them from a baking supplies store in Singapore called Phoon Huat and they sell the smallest size of tartlet shells in a pack of 30. If you are not from Singapore you could possibly get some frozen sweet shortcrust pastry from the supermarket to line your tart tins with 🙂

  75. 4theJoy August 24, 2010 at 9:16 pm #

    Those were very good directions for a very appetizing looking dish. 🙂

    It’s Ramadan today, the Islamic month in which Muslims refrain from eating, drinking, cursing, and all other sins from sunrise to sunset.

    I was directed to your blog from the WordPress “Freshly Pressed” frontpage. Lemme tell you, just a peek at this dessert made fasting 10 times more difficult! I’m drooling as I type…lol Jk 🙂

    Great job with this food blog. Your recipes look delicious!

    Best,

    How much exactly is 4 parts chocolate and 3 parts whipping cream..? & did you get the pastry shells from phoon huat..? Any idea how much it costs..?? Might wanna give the recipe a go for my sis engagement..!

    Thanks for your help..!

    • char May 30, 2011 at 9:37 am #

      Hi shaf, I’d go by weight of e chocolate vs e whipping cream eg 400g chocolate to 300g whipping cream/ 200g choc to 150g whipping cream. Yup got the shells from phoon huat! Can’t quite rem how much erm… It’s 30/ 40 small shells for $10? I think… You can call them to ask, I rem they weren’t v expensive. Congrats on your sister’s engagement, you can dust a bit of icing sugar on the finished tarts for decoration 🙂 have fun making them!
