Mimi’s Chocolate Almond Tart

Chocolate Tart | The Naptime Chef

Today I have to share a little chocolate tart I made last month. It was simple, yet sophisticated; rich, but not overwhelming. I loved making it because it wasn’t complicated and had a very grown-up appeal. It a chocolate tart with an almond crust, topped with mascarpone whipped cream and a rich caramel sauce. Simple? Yes. Decadent? You bet. This little gem would be perfect for a chocolate holiday dessert, or at just about any dinner party you throw this winter.┬áThe best part is that the recipe isn’t mine, it was already perfectly written out by Mimi Thorisson. I considered a few amendments but I’m glad I didn’t use them because I love the recipe exactly as it is written. You know what they say about messing with perfection.

Here is the recipe on her website, it is also in her first book. I’ve recently started reading her latest book and I adore it. It would be a terrific book to gift any cook in your life for Christmas. (In fact, I’ll be including it in my gift guides which are to come soon!) bon appetit!
