Now place it over the tart pan and layer it evenly. Cut off the excess pastry.

Remove it from oven, cool it. Now remove it from the mould and set aside.
Meanwhile lets make the filling. Take heavy cream in a sauce pan and heat it till it gets to the simmering point.
Turn off the heat and add vanilla, honey to it.Mix well.
Now pour this over chocolate and leave it alone for 5 mins.
