Seriously Chocolatey After dinner mint chocolate tart
Layers of dark Belgian mint chocolate, sumptuous mint cream and rich dark Belgian chocolate ganache in a light crisp chocolate pastry case, finished with white chocolate leaves.
What makes it the ultimate summer Seriously From Waitrose dessert?
This is a rich decedant dessert, a twist on the classic after dinner mint!
It has a fresh taste whist still being very chocolately and satisfying. It is a perfect finish to a summer meal and great for dinner parties or after an evening barbeque.
I made a variety of desserts and trialled them on friends and family and this was the definite winner!
White chocolate mint layer:
200ml double cream
150g white chocolate

150g dark Belgian chocolate
225ml double cream
4 egg yolks
50g caster sugar

Melt choc and cream. Beat egg and sugar and stir into chocolate mixture. Stir until thickens slightly. Cover tarts and refrigerate to set.
