Berry Topped Chocolate Silk Tart #SundaySupper

The classic pairing of chocolate and berry shines with every bite of this glorious Berry Topped Chocolate Silk Tart! Berry Topped Chocolate Silk | Graham cracker crust filled with silky chocolate and topped with luscious glazed berries

College Send-Off

With only one of our children still in school, and that school being a university, our back to school routines don’t revolve around buying school supplies and packing lunch boxes. Instead, we have a big family meal before the big college send off. And at our house, these sorts of family gatherings call for throwing a big slab o’ meat on the grill and finishing off the meal with a rich chocolate dessert. This Berry Topped Chocolate Silk Tart would be an ideal selection for my youngest chocoholic.

Celebrate with This Berry Topped Chocolate Silk Tart

This tart was exactly how we love to end a special meal. I actually made this silky chocolate dessert for a small dinner party I hosted in July. Even after a multi-course meal, the dessert plates were wiped clean! The berry topping was a delicious way to feature the sweet fruit of summer, but just a dollop of sweetened whipped cream would work well, too.

I can just picture your family send-off meal with a big slab of steak and a rich chocolate dessert – that’s exactly what would be on the menu around here – ‘feed the man meat’ (that was a well known TVC here in Oz!) Love the look of this and it could almost be deemed health-food with all that fruit! xx

  47. I can certainly see why everyone’s plates were clean, your chocolate tart is pretty and delicious sounding.

  48. Lizzy,
    Just one question… Is there any left for me? I love that there’s no cool whip in the recipe.
    Annamaria
