I baked this tart during a heatwave and I'm not even mad about it. This pretty little chocolate cherry tart was worth it! The good thing is that there is minimal baking involved (only the crust!) so read on, my sweaty friends!
I adore the two-toned look of Rainier cherries in photos but this tart would taste even better with dark cherry varieties. Chocolate and cherries are such a classic combination (hello, black forest cake!) that I'm not sure why I don't put them together more often!
The crust is flaky and buttery but understated enough to frame the chocolate without stealing the spotlight. The chocolate ganache filling is creamy and decadent with bites of cherry. The cherries in the filling aren't candied by any means but they actually taste a bit like jelly candy!
The cardamom infused whipped cream adds another dimension to the tart and complements the flavours beautifully... because who wants to be a basic whipped cream? Just kidding, I don't discriminate. At the moment, I'm low key obsessed with adding things to my whipped cream. I'm thinking a malted cream next to bring back those childhood Ovaltine memories.
Happy baking (or not)! And keep cool, you guys!
