Chocolate Ganache Tarts

Valentine’s day is right around the corner and that means lots of delicious desserts!

These chocolate ganache tarts are so chocolatey and decadent! They’re the ultimate chocoholic dessert. These tarts are also easy to make – all you need is 20 minutes. Make the tart crust, pop it in the oven and whip up the chocolate ganache while it bakes.

Did I mention this chocolate ganache tart filling is only 2 ingredients? All you need are dark chocolate chips and a can of coconut cream. Use dairy-free chocolate if you’d like this chocolate ganache tart to be dairy-free.

I made these for my family (my most truthful taste-testers) and they were in love with them! I’ve got another tart crust waiting in the fridge to be filled on Valentine’s day now. You can also get creative with the toppings. I used fruit but feel free to use coconut chips, edible flowers, nuts and really whatever your heart desires.

Chocolate Ganache Tart (makes 1 large tart or 4 mini tarts)

Crust:

  • 1 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs (I have not tested flax eggs)
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Chocolate ganache filling:

  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips (dairy-free option: use dairy-free chocolate)
  • 1 can coconut cream (chilled in the fridge overnight)
  • fruit for garnish

Directions:

  1. Refrigerate coconut cream: Place can of coconut cream in the fridge overnight. This is an important step to ensure that the coconut solidifies.
  2. Make crust: Combine oat flour, cacao powder, coconut sugar, eggs and vanilla. Mix to incorporate.
  3. Bake crust: Press mixture into a round Pyrex pan (or mini tart pans). Place wrapped baking beans in foil and place over the tart. Bake at 350F degrees for 15 minutes. Let cool.
  4. Make ganache: In a pot over medium-low heat, combine the dark chocolate chips and coconut solids from the can of coconut cream (save the water for a smoothie). Whisk until chocolate has melted.
  5. Assemble: Pour chocolate ganache mixture into cooled tart. Let set in the fridge minimum 2 hours. Top with fruit and enjoy!

happy cooking,

Sarah
