Cook's Notes

    OK,,after going on about it being a "ganache" on a plate…I tried it. I took 2 bites and literally almost became "sick"..nauseas .. really (last night). I threw it away today - all that heavy cream and Girrardelli chocolate down the drain. I honestly don't see this as a dessert.

    This tart "recipe" is nothing more than ""GANACHE"" in a tart shell…….that's all it is ladies …ganache that has been refrigerated and hardened … a piece of chocolate ! Just look at the recipe and you will see what I am saying. It didn't occur to me right away but when I looked again..well .. don't know if it's worth making a tart of ganache,,,

    Does anyone know if you could use regular baking semi-sweet chocolate(Valrhona or Callebaut?) instead of chocolate chips?

    This is yummy, easy, quick and delicious! BUT appears beautiful and like it too hours! I used a store bought crust as we were really short on time and it was even easier than the directions! I claimed that I would make this more...can't believe I haven't!

    SOOO delicious! I added a few rounded teaspoons of raspberry preserves into the filling. It melted in perfectly and it gave it a really great extra kick of raspberry. I also used my leftover cream to make whipped cream and it was a great light accompaniment to the really rich filling. Definitely add the raspberries to the top before refrigerating-- they stick in there better!

    Oh my...this dessert is decadent. It got RAVE reviews amongst my friends, and only crumbs remained at the end of the evening! It's so smooth and rich. The raspberries are a perfect complement; no whipped or ice cream needed. It's gorgeous. I'll definitely be making this again.

    This is so easy and delicious. I added the raspberries before chilling to set. Just be sure to pat the berries dry after washing!

    This is way too easy to make for how delicious it is! It took me about five seconds and wowed our moms on Mother's Day. Thanks for making me look good, Martha, again! The crust may be my favorite part... buttery, crisp and delicious. I would recommend actually putting the berries on top before chilling the filling to set. I put them on afterwards, as the recipe instructs, and they just ended up rolling all around and falling off.
