Chocolate and Strawberry Tart

I’ve really chosen the worst time to attempt making raspberry desserts. Well basically it’s impossible because it’s out of season. First it was the white chocolate and meant to be raspberry tarts and now it’s the milk chocolate and raspberry tart that was substituted with strawberries. I will definitely be trying this recipe again when raspberries are actually in season. It was such a quick and easy dessert to put together and I was particularly impressed with the pastry which is basically a shortbread pastry – divine!

If you into dark chocolate, I would definitely recommend using dark chocolate for a bitter chocolate tart, the strawberries provide the perfect balance 🙂

Have a lovely weekend all and happy baking! xxx
