  • 16 ounces dark chocolate, chips or cut in smaller chunks I used a 76%, cut you can use whatever you prefer. If you don't like dark chocolate you can always use a semi sweet or even milk chocolate.
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream If you don't have any heavy cream, you can always use milk and add in a few tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Heat cream in pan on cooktop or in microwave. Pour it over chocolate and allow it to sit about 30 seconds. Whisk slowly until it is smooth and incorporated.If you need to heat it a little to get it completely melted, you can do that too. Add in vanilla last.
    If you are making a tart like I did, pour it into baked shell. Place in the fridge to chill for at least 2 hours. Top with strawberries like I did, or even a pinch of flake salt.
    If you don't finish the tart like we did within a few hours, it will hold well in the fridge for up to 3 days.
    Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it!
