Double Chocolate Mocha Tart

Double Chocolate Mocha Tart

This Double Chocolate Mocha Tart is exactly what its name describes - dark chocolate ganache infused with coffee, encased in a rich chocolate tart. Not forgetting the two little macaron pigs that are having a nice "mud" bath.

Baked this tart with Gail from Project Weekends for her fiancé's birthday! (Happy birthday Jem!) She said he doesn't have a sweet tooth and enjoys drinking coffee. Thus, I came up with this recipe - controlled the level of sweetness by using dark chocolate, and added a hint of coffee in the chocolate ganache.

Really glad they liked the tart! Check out my this recipe and other desserts on their site at SumoWeekends!

On another note, things have been busy in the kitchen with Christmas just around the corner. It's my favourite time of the year. New Christmas designs will be on the blog soon!

2. Stir in instant coffee. You can adjust the amount of coffee according to your preference.
3. Pour over dark chocolate chips and stir till all chocolate has melted.
4. Sprinkle sea salt.
5. Let the mixture cool slightly before pouring on tart.
6. This is optional, but you can decorate with pig macarons to make them look like they are taking a mud bath :)
7. Chill before serving.
