Chocolate Ganache, Strawberry and Passion Fruit Tart

June 8, 2015Sew White

This incredible Chocolate truffle and Strawberry Tart is so quick and easy to make. It is perfect centre piece for Wimbledon tennis parties as well as delicious for summer dinner parties. The mix of rich creamy chocolate with the fresh and fruity strawberries compliment each other to create a divine dessert.

This has been described as the best dessert I have ever made. So it’s pretty good. The mix of chocolate bourbon biscuits as the base, chocolate ganache, strawberries and passion fruit is delicious and you will most definitely want more than one slice. This is a really easy pudding to make. It only takes about 30 minutes altogether and then can sit in the fridge happily for a few hours before serving.

I love how shiny the ganache is. It looks almost too good to eat.

Ganahce is so easy to make and it works brilliantly well as a filling like this but also as a cupcake and cake filling/topping. It’s all the good things chocolate, double cream and a little butter to make it shine.

Adding passion fruit is a winner as it gives a gorgeously tart taste which works so well with the sweetness of the strawberries and richness of the chocolate. I’d recommend decorating the tart with the passion fruit when you’re ready to serve.

Makes a 24cm tart.
If you don’t have a tart tine a loose bottomed cake tin would work well too.

Chocolate truffle and strawberry tart

Prep Time 30 minutes
fridge time 1 hour
Servings 10 people

Ingredients

  • 400 grams bourbon biscuits
  • 140 grams unsalted butter
  • 200 grams plain chocolate
  • 100 grams milk chocolate
  • 250 ml double cream
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 250 grams fresh strawberries
  • 1 passionfruit

Instructions

  1. In a blender or food processor grind up the bourbon biscuits until the resemble bread crumbs. A rolling pin and a sandwich bag is slower but also works well to make crumbs.

    Melt the 140g butter and add to the biscuits and mix together.-Spoon the mix into the tart tin and push down to make the base and into corners to make the case.

    Pop it in to the fridge for 30 minutes while you make the ganache.

    In a pan warm up the double cream until it starts to bubble. Don't let it boil.

    Add the broken up chocolate pieces to a bowl and add the 2 teaspoons of butter.

    Pour the cream over the top and slowly mix together until everything is melted and mixed together.

    Take the biscuit case out of the fridge and pour the ganache in.

    Stud the ganache with strawberries. I prefer putting the strawberries in whole so you get a good strawberry to chocolate ratio but adding them cut up works well too.

    Pop the dessert back into the fridge and leave for at least 1 hour.

    When ready to serve sprinkle the passion fruit over the top.

    You could serve it with a little extra cream, ice cream or strawberries but it doesn't really need it.

    Enjoy

    I reckon that tart is the best chocolate tart I’ve ever seen Sisley – totally amazing. The other strawberry and chocolate combinations look pretty good too, but they are as nothing ….!

      Raspberries would work really really well too. It’s a great base to add any fruit you like 🙂

      I’m sure a thin slice would be fine… the fruit must cancel out the chocolate I’m sure x

    I’ve a question. If you’re making this the day before, when do you add the strawberries? The day after, once a the tart reaches toom temp?

      Add the strawberries when you add the ganache but I would recommend doing that bit on the day you need it as the liquid from the strawberries might upset the chocolate unless that you add them without cutting the top off.
