I'm probably the #1 fan of chocolate! I love it sooo much, however, I'm not a fan of dark chocolate. But in this recipe it's really good cause there's an amazing balance when you eat it with some fresh fruits. Plus the dark chocolate doesn't make it excessively sweet, it makes it extra rich. Plus, the coffee definitely gives a nice kick to the filling! I'm not gonna lie, it probably took me more than one ( or 5) tries haha, but I definitely had a great final result!
I really hope you enjoy trying and eating this very simple recipe!
What you need!
80g Softened butter
200g Semi-sweet chocolate
-Preheat the oven at 350F.
-In a bowl mix the butter, the 1/2 egg, the sugar and the cream until it's homogeneous.
-Add the flour and mix with hands until it starts clumping together.
-Put on table or wooden board, and knead the dough until it's even and forms a ball.
-Wrap it up and let it rest for an hour in the refrigerator.
-Take it out of the refrigerator.
-With a rolling pin, flatten the dough at about 1mm of thickness.
-With a round cookie cutter (or anything round) cut the dough to put in the pie molds.
-Use a fork to punch a few holes in the molded dough.
-Use parchment paper cut in squares, put them over each molded doughs, and add some peas over it as a weight.
-Insert in the oven for 15 minutes.
-take out, and take the peas and parchment paper off.
-Put back in the oven for 5 more minutes.
-Take out and let it cool down.
-Take a sauce pan and put a little bit of water in it and make it simmer.
-In an aluminum bowl, put all of the ingredients.
-When the water is simmering, put the bowl over the saucepan. (Bain-marie)
-Use a spatula to mix every now and then until it's melted.
-When everything is homogeneous and melted, pass it through a strainer to make sure it's smooth.
-Put the chocolate fudge in each pie crust.
-Let it cool for at least an hour.
-And now eat away!!
I personally added some fresh berries and vanilla ice cream with it. its just a perfect balance between the tartness of the fruits, the sweet of the ice cream, and richness of the pie!
