Mini Chocolate Tart Recipe with step wise pictures.
This super delicious chocolate tart is to die for. I used a shortcrust pastry which i used for my gold dust cookies and it was so yummy.
The crispy cookie base has a hint of ginger flavour because of the ground ginger added in it which complimented the chocolate creamy filling.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
