Reviews for Chocolate Ganache Tarts
"Yum! I'd love to try this filling in a full sized pie! The pastry was very crumbly for me and creating the shells was time consuming. Otherwise, a very easy recipe with minimal ingredients.Oh, and I used half bitter-sweet and half semi-sweet chocolate chips."
"I did not care for the shells. I ended up piping the filling into phyllo tartlet shells. I got rave reviews!"
"The crust was a too thick but had nice flavor."
"This is my first attempt at making pastries, and it was very simple and delicious."
"Simple, elegant, and delicious. These are great. The pastry puffed up when it was baked, so I used the back side of a little 1/4 teaspoon to push the dough down to create an indentation in the center. I doubled the recipe and ended up with a lot of extra chocolate filling. I used a Wilton #12 tip to pipe the chocolate into the pastry shells. Piping made it easy and pretty. You may want to do the third step 1st so that the chocolate can cool while you work on the pastry shells. This is a "must try" recipe."
"YUMMY! So easy to make and they look so professional. Will make again many times."
"I took these easy to make tarts to a weekly card game, and everyone liked them very much. The crust is very flaky, but I think the chocolate could be a little bit more chocolatey."
"I made these for a bridal shower. Everyone loved them."
"This was the easiest recipe and my guests loved them."
"I have made these several times but only the Ganache portion. I keep packages of mini-filo shells in the house. This makes a fabulous last minute dessert, sprinkled with powdered sugar and served with a little fresh whipcream."
