Dessert never tasted as decadent and divine as these Blueberry-Pistachio Tartletts with Chocolate Shells. There are only four servings in this recipe, so you have to decide if you want to make more to share, or hide them for yourself. The recipe takes 70 minutes to prepare and combines rich milk chocolate with sweet blueberries, salty pistachios, and fresh mint. Pour a tall glass of milk and enjoy this sweet treat!

Ingredients

  • fresh mint leaves

Directions

  1. Melt the chocolate (150 gr.) in a double boiler.
  2. Spread a layer of chocolate in flexible tartlet molds using a teaspoon or a brush. The layer should not too thin to prevent the tarts from breaking when unmolding.
  3. Allow to set in the fridge. (About 1 hour)
  4. In a saucepan combine sugar and marsala and heat to obtain a syrup (sugar should dissolve completely into the liquid and thicken a little).
  5. Let it cool.

  7. Put the cream in a pastry bag.

The chocolate shells on this recipe were medium thick and the blueberries played a good role in giving out robust flavor. The pistachios were a nice addition that made the entire recipe pop.
