|You’ll know I love you if I share this tart with you!|
|And, a tester-taster for us – just to make sure it’s good enough!|
This week’s Baked Sunday Mornings challenge is for Chocolate Peanut Butter Fondue, but I chose to make up a recipe I’d missed because the group made it before I joined: Almond Joy Tart. My mother invited us to dinner tomorrow night so I wanted to make something special to share with my family. Everyone in my family loves coconut, so this looked like the perfect choice.
The original recipe calls for 6 4-inch tarts but I opted to make one large tart and one small one (we had to have a tester-taster!).
|It did occur to us to say this didn’t turn out…but my mom reads my blog!|
This tart is really simple to make – an almond crust filled with coconut immersed in white chocolate ganache and topped with chocolate glaze and chocolate-covered almonds. It takes time, but most of it is spent resting between steps. I had dark and milk chocolate covered almonds from Trader Joe’s, so I used them as a garnish.
