Salted Dark Chocolate Tart

This tart is rich and delicious. I hope you enjoy it!

1 Cup butter, softened

1/3 Cup icing sugar

1 Cup all purpose flour

1 Cup almond meal

1 Cup heavy cream

1/4 Cup Kahlua

6 oz dark chocolate squares, chopped

2 tsp fleur de sel (or other sea salt)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Farenheit

In a stand mixer, cream together the butter and icing sugar. In half cup increments slowly mix in the flour followed by the almond meal until well combined. The dough should pull itself into a ball. Evenly press the dough into the bottom and up the sides of a 9″ tart pan with a removable bottom. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and set aside to cool.

In a sauce pan over medium heat, combine the heavy cream and Kahlua until you just start to see some bubbles around the outer edge of the pot. Add the chocolate and whisk the mixture together for about 1 minute. Remove the pot from the heat and continue stirring until smooth. Mix in 1 1/2 tsp of the sea salt. Set aside for 20 minutes. Upon cooling, pour the chocolate into the cooled crust. Sprinkle the remaining sea salt on top of the chocolate, then allow the tart to chill in the refrigerator for 1 – 2 hours before serving.
