Chocolate Rum Tart


What a, proud moment of mine baking breakthrough. Believe me you. Can you believe it that I made Chocolate Rum Tart? Joy to the world. Okay, okay, I am not floating in cloud 9 no more. I am back to reality. But still, such a breakthrough for me (Lemon Bars & Pineapple Bread Pudding). I guess when the mind is set, I guess nothing is impossible. Never mind if we are not the first at the finishing line. An achievement is still an achievement (Cream Puffs & Soft Rolls), for me, really, though I am not at all a fan of chocs, but for choc lovers, I can assure you that these chocolate tarts are a heavenly retreat (Dates Sunflower Seeds Cake & Fried Apple Fritters). Vanilla scented pastry and within it, rum infused dark chocolate. Rum of course is optional unless you are a once a while drunkard like me, these tarts by the way must be chilled first to set the choc filling prior to luxuriating in. I love you too everyone.

Ingredients
For the Pastry:
250g soft flour
75g sugar
50g ground almonds
190g butter
1 egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla

Chocolate filling
300g dark chocolate
250g cream
50g butter
1/2 tsp rum or brandy

Method
Rub butter into dry ingredients until crumbly. Stir yolk and vanilla together and add to flour mixture until a dough forms. 
Refrigerate for about 20 minutes.  Roll out dough and line a 25cm tart ring.
Blind bake for approximately 10 minutes.
Bring cream to a boil and pour over chocolate. Sitr in butter and rum/brandy.
 
Pour into pre baked tart.  Refrigerate to set chocolate. Decorate with white chocolate and serve.
