Berry Topped Chocolate Silk Tart

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 a Chocolate Tart

This tart was exactly how we love to end a special meal. I actually made this silky chocolate tart 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.
