Preparation Time:
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Inactive Prep Time: approx. 4 hours

Servings :
12 slices


For the Crust:
½ stick butter at room temperature
10 chocolate graham crackers
3 tablespoons almonds

For the Filling:
¾ cup of heavy cream
1/3 cup honey
½ tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups (12 ounces) of chocolate morsels/chips


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Break the graham crackers into little chunks and place into a food processor along with the almonds and butter. Process until the mixture forms into fine crumbs or like powder crumbs.
Butter the bottom of a spring-foam pan. Press the crust mixture into the bottom of the buttered pan until it forms an even layer for the bottom of the tart crust. Bake for 12-15 minutes and then keep aside and cool.

In a small saucepan, whisk the heavy cream, honey and vanilla until everything has been well mixed. Bring the mixture to just below a boil.

Place the chocolate morsels/chips into a medium bowl and pour the hot cream mixture over the chocolate and stir until the chocolate becomes smooth. The heat of the cream will help melt the chocolate into a creamy smooth chocolate sauce. Pour the chocolate filling over the prepared crust and refrigerate for at least 4-5 hours or until the chocolate has set and become firm.

Cut the tart into wedges and serve! Enjoy!

Ingredients :

For the vegetables:
1 large onion
2 cloves garlic minced
2 medium red tomatoes
½ green bell pepper
½ tablespoon oregano
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons Olive Oil

1 sheet puff pastry, defrosted
2 ounces garlic-and-herb goat cheese
2 ounces feta cheese
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
½ tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons lightly chopped basil leaves
crushed black pepper

Directions :

Preheat oven to 400 F.

Slice the onion and mince the garlic. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium to low heat and add the onions and garlic. Saute for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until all the onions are translucent.
Turn the heat to low and let the onion and garlic cook.

Slice the tomatoes and green bell pepper. Add to the onions and garlic. Add the oregano, ½ teaspoons salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Continue to cook for another 5-10 minutes until the tomatoes and green pepper are cooked well. Remove from heat.

Defrost puff pastry according to package instructions. Unfold the sheet of puff pastry and place on a baking sheet. Take the tines of a fork and prick the pastry. Then lightly brush the pastry with ½ tablespoon of olive oil. Sprinkle the 2 tablespoons of the grated Parmesan cheese on top of the pastry sheet. On top of the cheese, place the vegetable mixture. Leave about a ½ inch margin between the edge of the pastry sheet and the vegetables.

Crumble the 4 ounces of goat cheese and feta cheese on top of the vegetables. Place the lightly chopped basil leaves on top, and sprinkle with ½ teaspoon black pepper.

Bake at 400 F for about 15-20 minutes until pastry turns light golden brown. Cut and serve hot or warm. Enjoy!
