Ganache Topped Chocolate Tart

Ganache Topped Chocolate Tart

This was Ganache Topped Chocolate Tart was the second dessert I made for Nick’s teachers’ holiday luncheon…he’s a senior and this is my 8th and final year of volunteering at Cathedral High School…sniff, sniff.  A decadent chocolate option is always in order when it comes to desserts…they’re usually the first to disappear from a buffet of sweets.  I also made this lemon pavlova for those few who go for citrus over chocolate. You should have seen the long faces when the family figured out this tart wasn’t for them! This marvelous chocolate wonder may make an encore appearance as our Christmas dessert.
