An Elegant Chocolate Tart for Holiday Celebrations

An Elegant Chocolate Tart for Holiday Celebrations

Mint chocolate chip ice cream is my absolute favorite. For this recipe, I decided to create a more elegant variation using cacao nibs instead of chocolate chips. The result is a less sweet— and very intense—chocolate flavor with each bite. When paired with my Chocolate Custard Tart, it makes a lovely dessert for chocolate lovers.

Despite having multiple components, this tart is really quite easy to make. I suggest preparing the tart dough or ice cream several days in advance to save time. The finished tarts are best when filled and baked up to one day before serving. If you really want to save time, you can purchase ice cream and pre-made tart shells, and simply make the tart filling from scratch. Read on for the full recipe.
