Dark Chocolate Ganache Strawberry Tarts

Hi there everyone, this is Swah from the food and travel blog Love Swah and I’m thrilled to be guest posting on Bec’s lovely blog today! 

Dark Chocolate Ganache and Strawberry Tarts

Strawberries are currently in season in Australia and are super cheap, so I wanted to develop an easy and delicious dessert recipe for you to whip up next time you have guests over. This recipe also works really well with raspberries or blueberries too.

As much as I love making everything from scratch, I don’t mind the odd shortcut. So when I am pressed for time, I occasionally buy store bought tart shells. Shock horror, I know! But when you pair this with a decadent dark chocolate ganache filling and fresh strawberries, your guests will be none the wiser. In fact, they will probably think you’ve been slaving in the kitchen all day!

    We are going through a strawberry influx too. They are so cheap right now and my little one loves them. However I think these treats are best left for adults only.

    These look beautiful and oh so tasty!
    I am all in favour of a little short cut every now and then. As long as the pastry is crisp and compliments the tart, why not?
