Mini Milk Chocolate Tarts

Chocolate is one of my favourite things, and I am very much not alone in that. So here’s a very easy and pretty quick recipe for some creamy chocolate tarts.

FYI these could be made with dark or white chocolate but I chose milk because it’s my favourite. Simples.

Enjoy πŸ™‚

Ingredients – For the pastryΒ 

225g Plain Flour

110g Unsalted Butter

2. Cube the butter and rub it into the flour and sugar with your fingers until you have a crumbly mixture

3. Add the egg and continue mixing with your hands until you have a soft, combined dough

4. Separate the dough into sections and press each one into a tart mould making sure the dough goes into each groove and is of even thickness all around

5. With a fork press holes into the base of each tart, and then weigh baking paper down with ceramic baking beads and leave in the fridge for 20 minutes as it’ll be quite warm and the butter is likely to melt too soon in the oven

6. Blind bake for 15 minutes and then again for 10 minutes without the baking beads until the pastry is golden brown

3. Once the mix has cooled slightly, add the milk and stir until it has a glossy shine

4. Pour into the pastry cases and leave to set for 2-3 hours (I put them in the fridge but you don’t have to!)

5. These should now be set and hold their shape when cut (fingers crossed!)
