Chocolate Fudge Tartlet

I’ve made these tartlets about a million times because they are so easy to make and everyone loves them at parties. I’ve even made them for plenty of football Sundays, and the whole family gobbles them up.

The recipe for these chocolate fudge tartlets is adapted from Giada De Laurentiis’ Chocolate Honey Almond Tart. When I first started cooking, Giada at Home was the cooking show I watched.

I just love seeing her cook and hearing her Italian pronunciations, which Jim likes to make fun of, but I happen to think are not only correct but also totally adorable.

This was one of the first Giada recipes that I tried, and it was such a hit that I had to make it again and again. Of course, when anyone makes a recipe, again and again, it begins to change a little, and that’s how I ended up with this slight variation.

What to serve with Chocolate Fudge Tartlets

Chocolate Fudge Tartlets are a delicious and easy dessert to make. However, you may be wondering what to serve with them. Here are some recommendations:

  • Chocolate ice cream: This is a classic pairing that is sure to please. The chocolate fudge and the chocolate ice cream complement each other perfectly.
  • Vanilla ice cream: If you want to contrast the rich chocolate flavor of the tartlets, vanilla ice cream is a great choice. The sweetness of the ice cream will also help to offset the richness of the chocolate fudge.
  • Fresh berries: A mix of fresh berries is a great way to add a pop of color and sweetness to the dish. Blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries all pair well with chocolate.
  • Chocolate sauce: If you want an extra indulgent treat, top the Chocolate Fudge Tartlets with a chocolate sauce. This will take the dessert from good to amazing!

How to make Chocolate Fudge Tartlets

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Open a 9-inch springform pan and place parchment paper on the circular base. Close the pan so the parchment paper stays on the base. Grease the sides of the pan with butter.
  3. Combine nuts and chocolate graham crackers in a food processor until they’re a fine powder. Add the butter and pulse 10-15 times, until completely combined and looks almost like cookie dough. Press the mixture evenly into the springform pan. Put the pan on a baking sheet and heat in the oven for 14 minutes. Remove the pan to a cooling rack and allow it to cool completely for about 30 minutes.
  4. In a small saucepan, add the heavy cream over low heat, and slowly whisk in the honey. Keep whisking until the mixture is off-white, so you know it’s combined. Increase the heat to medium and stir often until just under a boil. Remove from heat.
  5. Put the chocolate chips in a medium bowl. Pour the honey and cream mixture over the chocolate and stir until all the chocolate has melted. Pour the chocolate over the cooled crust and refrigerate overnight. The next day, use a knife or spatula to loosen the edges of the tart from the springform pan. Open the pan and slide the tart off the parchment paper onto a cutting board. Cut anyway you’d like, and serve.
