I have no words....but I don't need any words! One bite of this Dark Chocolate Raspberry Tart is worth a million words, and sighs, and gasps of delight! If you love silky and rich dark chocolate, and if you LOVE fresh raspberries, this little treat is going to take you to the moon!
We celebrated our Valentine's Day this weekend, as it was just a little bit too crazy during the week. Staying at home to celebrate, away from the crowds and all the gimmicks, is easily our favorite way to celebrate each other. We usually have a homemade gourmet dinner that we make together, all while enjoying a glass of wine or our favorite Sparkling Raspberry Champagne Cocktails. But this little treat I had whipped up the day before - it literally only took a half hour from start to finish. But what a finish! You should have seen Skipper's face when I pulled this little surprise out from its hiding spot in the fridge!
This beautiful tart starts with an Oreo cookie crust, with perfect buttery crumb. The smooth, rich chocolate ganache sits on top of a little surprise - Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate & Raspberry Squares, that just seem to "melt" into the silky ganache, infusing even more raspberry flavor into every bite. Sweet fresh red raspberries top sit on top like royalty.
So deceptively easy to make, so decadent - and scored me some major points!
This Dark Chocolate Raspberry Tart is off the charts in terms of WOW factor...delicious every bite! And so perfect for celebrating Valentine's Day and life's special moments.
