Chocolate Ganache Tart with baked Almond “Shortcrust”

So simple, yet so delicious

This recipe was created in collaboration with Sophie Fisher (@coconutandbliss). For anyone following us on Instagram, (or anyone who has our ebook ‘The Ultimate Chocolate and Caramel Collection‘) I’m sure you would have gathered by now we love a good chocolate collab!

We have tried to give as many alternatives as possible so that this tart can be made with whatever ingredients you have on hand, or whichever ingredients are most easily accessible to you.
