Strawberry Topped Chocolate Tart

Hooray, it’s time for the monthly Chocolate Party, hosted by Roxana’s Home Baking. Each month we pair a different ingredient with chocolate and share via a linky party. You are most welcome to contribute if you bake a chocolate and strawberry dish and blog about it this May. Scroll down to check out the rules. I made a simple chocolate tart and bedazzled it with fragrant ripe strawberries.

To make this Strawberry Topped Chocolate Tart even easier, you can buy a pre-made pie crust either in a tin or fit the rolled version into your tart pan. Bake as instructed and the rest is a cinch. Fill with chocolate ganache, then top with your favorite fruit. Besides strawberries, sliced bananas or luscious red raspberries would taste amazing. If the berry design looks intimidating, just slice off the stem ends of your strawberries and arrange them flat side down…the result will be just as stunning, just a bit trickier to slice.

Tips for Assembling This Chocolate Tart

I assembled mine the day before I served it and had to mop up some liquid from the berries before slicing. Not a huge inconvenience, but you can avoid this by topping and glazing on the same day you plan to indulge. Just go ahead and make the tart the day before, then garnish a few hours before you plan to serve it. No damage control necessary!

If you don’t want a pastry crust, make a graham cracker or chocolate cookie crust.

Substitute fresh raspberries or other fruit if the strawberries are lackluster when you’re grocery shopping.

I like using red currant jelly to glaze my red colored fruit. Any red colored jelly will work.

I took this to a family gathering (where it disappeared in a flash), and I know both my sisters-in-law could easily whip this one up. I hope to hear their success stories soon!

I used Driscoll’s Brand strawberries in this tart recipe. 99% of the time, Driscoll’s are the reddest, most fragrant berries at my market. Disclosure: The lovely folks from Driscoll’s provided me with coupons for free berries, but that did not influence my review. All opinions stated are my own.
