Hooray, it’s time for the monthly Chocolate Party, hosted by Roxana’s Home Baking. Each month we pair a different ingredient with chocolate and share via a linky party. You are most welcome to contribute if you bake a chocolate and strawberry dish and blog about it this May…scroll down to check out the rules. I made a simple chocolate tart and bedazzled it with fragrant ripe strawberries. To make this Strawberry Topped Chocolate Tart even easier, you can buy a premade pie crust either in a tin or fit the rolled version into your tart pan. Bake as instructed and the rest is a cinch. Fill with chocolate ganaache, then top with your favorite fruit…besides strawberries, sliced bananas or luscious red raspberries would taste amazing. If the berry design looks intimidating, just slice off the stem ends of your strawberries and arrange them flat side down…the result will be just as stunning…just a bit trickier to slice.
- Baked 9 inch tart shell (use your favorite crust recipe or buy a premade pie shell)
- 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 16 ounces ripe strawberries*, sliced (I saved the outer slices for a fruit salad)
- ½ cup red currant jelly
- *I used Driscoll's brand strawberries
