- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup cold water
- 1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 pint fresh raspberries
- 2 tablespoons raspberry jam
- 1 tablespoon powdered sugar, for dusting
- Start by making the tart crust. In a food processor, combine the all-purpose flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, cold cubed butter, and granulated sugar. Pulse until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- Gradually add cold water and continue to pulse until the dough comes together. Form the dough into a disk, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Roll out the chilled dough on a floured surface and line tart pans with it. Prick the bottom with a fork and bake for about 15 minutes or until the crust is set. Let it cool.
- While the crust is cooling, prepare the dark chocolate ganache. In a saucepan, heat the heavy cream until it just starts to simmer. Remove from heat and add the dark chocolate chips. Stir until smooth and well combined.
- Spread a layer of raspberry jam on the bottom of each tart crust. Then, fill each crust with the dark chocolate ganache mixture.
- Top the tarts with fresh raspberries and dust with powdered sugar.
- Refrigerate the tarts for about 2 hours to allow the ganache to set. Serve chilled and enjoy your Gourmet Raspberry Dark Chocolate Tarts!
