TWD: Tarte Noire or Tarte S’More

by Holly on July 6, 2010

Tuesdays with Dorie this week is a sleek, chic concoction called a Tarte Noire – simply put, the most simple and perfect little chocolate tart in creation.  I am so excited that this recipe’s time has finally come! Thanks go out to Dharmagirl of bliss: towards a delicious life. I wanted to choose this for my pick long ago, but needed something at that time that was Passover appropriate for more of the group.  I actually first made this about two years ago and just haven’t been able to stand not screaming about it from the rooftops!  You can see my original tart below.  I posted about it over here and absolutely loved it in its pure form of the tart crust and chocolate.  When I was thinking about whether or not I would be able to make the recipe for this week though I started thinking about all kinds of things going on in our lives lately – mainly all about summertime and childhood memories.
I mentioned that we made S’Mores with the boys when we were visiting my in-laws on their farm a couple of weeks ago.  It was actually their first campfire too and they loved it – even though it was still raining on us.  Anyway, it made me think about the fact that, although I really love S’Mores, I would love them a lot more with a better quality chocolate than the norm.  Enter the Tarte Noire becoming the Tarte S’More.  
I decided to make mini graham cracker tartlet crusts (which as you can see fell apart, but were still delicious – not sure how to correct that better, but it still tasted awesome).  I filled the graham crusts with the ganache for the tarte and let them set (I actually even froze them for a little while in my impatience).  I then topped each one with a generous scoop of marshmallow fluff and toasted the fluff till it was warm, gooey and just a little singed in some spots and voila! Upscale S’Mores.  They were sooooo good.  Dangerously good.
