I had never thought of making a chocolate tart, before I found one on the breakfast table of a hotel in Ancona. And for true chocoholics it’s an instant hit.
Compared to brownies or chocolate almond cake, this chocolate tart is less sweet and more intensely flavoured. The pie shell gives it a light crunch, while the filling tastes of dark chocolate with a soft, but firm texture not unlike Viennese nougat without the nuts. An utterly delightful way to start the day or end a meal.
