How to make chocolate tart from scratch at home?
Start off by preparing the graham cracker crust or you can use store-bought crust. Then, make the chocolate pudding by combining whole milk, evaporated milk, sugar, cocoa powder, cornstarch and continue whisking on medium heat until it becomes thick and creamy. Remove from heat and pour into mini tart shells and let it set int fridge. Top it off with chipped cream before serving and enjoy!
Why is chocolate tart not setting?
There is not enough cornstarch in the recipe, which helps to thicken the filling.
Can you freeze homemade chocolate tart?
No, it cannot be frozen because it does not thaw well and the filling can separate. However, chocolate ganache tart can be frozen fo up to 1 month in tightly sealed freezer bags.
Well, that’s all for today,
