Chocolate Glazed Chocolate Tarts are two individual chocolate tarts made with buttery, crumbly chocolate graham cracker crusts, and a rich, creamy chocolate filling, topped with a beautiful shiny chocolate glaze with a mirror-like finish. It is pure chocolate heaven and a perfect dessert for Valentine’s Day.
If you want to truly impress that special someone, then serve this stunning dessert for Valentine’s Day. These Chocolate Glazed Chocolate Tarts are certain to win them over. Whether it is to impress your special someone for Valentine’s Day or impress your family and friends at a holiday dinner, you can’t go wrong with this dessert, especially when it is made with Ghirardelli Chocolate.
To make the best dessert, you need the best ingredients. That is why I used Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate and Ghirardelli Valentine’s Day Impressions Chocolate in my Chocolate Glazed Chocolate Tarts.
Ghirardelli 60% cacao premium chocolate baking chips, in my opinion, have the best taste and texture when baking cakes, cookies, tarts or anything other goodies.
Whether given as gifts by themselves or on top of a dessert, these Ghirardelli Valentine’s Day Impression Chocolate, with special Valentine’s Day messages, such as “Be Mine” or “XOXO,” will show that you care. You can choose between Milk & White or Milk & Dark flavors.
Since we will be celebrating our 25th anniversary this year, I wanted a truly special Valentine’s Day dessert. These Chocolate Glazed Chocolate Tarts did the trick. You should have seen Mr. Flavor Mosaic’s eyes light up when he saw them.
Being the chocolate lover he is, he quickly grabbed both tarts, and asked what I was going to have for dessert because he was taking both of those. That guy…..he is such a romantic! 😉 Of course, he did reluctantly relinquish one tart to give to me. But that is the risk you take making these over-the-top desserts. There may not be any left for the chef!
