Utterly scrumptious.


  • dark chocolate pastry:
  • 8 oz plain flour
  • 2 oz cocoa powder
  • 1.5 oz caster sugar
  • 1.5 oz icing sugar
  • 1 large egg beaten lightly
  • 6 oz butter (chilled and cubed)
  • 2 tsp cold water
  • white chocolate filling:
  • 1/2 pint double cream
  • 150 g white chocolate (broken into pieces)


  • Boil cream and pour over white chocolate. Mix well and chill for 3 hours
  • Beat until thick and double in size. Fill the tarts and top with raspberries.
  • Sieve flour, cocoa powder and icing sugar into a large bowl. Add castor sugar and butter. Mix together until they resemble breadcrumbs.
  • Add egg and water to form soft ball. Knead and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Grease tartlet tins or 1 large tin. Roll out pastry thinly, line moulds and put into fridge for 30 mins.
  • Line tartlets with tin foil and fill with rice and bake blind (just putting in rice, stops the pastry from rising and shrinking) for 15-20 mins at 180°C.
  • Allow pastry to cool and brush some melted chocolate over the shell (cooked pastry!).
