Chocolate Tartlets

We’ve sometimes made this in one large M&S tart case – the choice is yours. Either way, these are very pretty, with a wonderfully glossy surface, but you could give them a dusting of cocoa.

Chocolate Tartlets
Ingredients
 192g pack of 8 all-butter sweet tartlet cases (M&S)
 320g jar Fairtrade rich chocolate truffle sauce (M&S)
 50g unsalted butter
 2 tablespoons half-fat crème fraîche
 1 tablespoon Cognac (or dark rum)
 well-chilled pouring cream or crème fraîche, to serve

Method

Start off by putting the chocolate truffle sauce, butter, creme fraiche and Cognac into a heatproof bowl, then place the bowl over a pan of barely simmering water, making sure the base of the bowl doesn’t actually touch the water.

Heat gently, until smooth and glossy, stirring now and then.

Now pour the chocolate mixture into the tartlet cases. Leave them to cool before covering and chilling in the fridge for a minimum of 11⁄2 hours.

Serve with a generous amount of cream or creme fraiche.
