Ganache tart– Use this Easy Chocolate Ganache {2 Ingredient} in place of the chocolate pudding. This is much richer than the recipe below.

Add zests– Like orange, lemon, or lime.

Try extracts– Such as vanilla, almond, lemon, hazelnut, bourbon, maple, or coconut.

Try another cookie crust– Such as this Oreo Pie Crust or hazelnut crust or gingersnap crust.

Serve as a deconstructed tartIn individual cups or a big bowl, spoon the pudding mixture and top it with cookie crumbles and a few dollops of whipped cream.

Tips And Techniques For Mini Chocolate Tart

Does this contain eggs? No, it does not contain eggs! Instead, it’s thickened with cornstarch.

What crust to use? I made a homemade graham cracker crust, but you can use a store-bought if that is easier.

How long to chill pudding? Chill the pudding in the fridge for at least 6 hours, but overnight is even better. Make sure the pudding is fully set.

Use unsalted butter– Because this prevents the pudding from becoming too salty.

Remove from heat as soon as the pudding is thickened– This prevents the filling from becoming too gelatinous keeping it creamy and smooth.

Whisk continuously-This ensures there are no lumps and mixture remains smooth.

Why is my tart filling not setting? There is not enough cornstarch in the recipe, which helps to thicken the filling or the mixture wasn’t cooked long enough.

Storage Of Tart

Refrigerate– In a sealed container for up to 3 days.

Freeze-This cannot be frozen because it does not thaw well and the filling can separate. However, a ganache tart can be frozen for up to 1 month in tightly sealed freezer bags.

  1. Hey Abeer!

    Not sure if you remember but I used to work with you at Learna back here in Canada. Your blog looks great! I recently decided to try my hand at baking and have been documenting my experiences.

    Cant wait to see all the creative ideas you come up with
    5 stars

  2. This really looks rich and delicious! (whatever the official definition!)

  3. When making the chocolate filling, add 100g dark chocolate after you finished making the thick lushes chocolate mixture and make sure it has cocoa butter in it as some chocolates are made with vegetable shorting which is not pleasant. Once the chocolate has fully melted and incorporated into the hot mixture, add this to the pie. It will taste even better. If you are reaaly feeling extra naughty add a splash or rum for addded YUM!! Trust me I’m a serial chocoholic. Enjoy!!5 stars
