Chocolate Orange Tarts have only three ingredients. Simple yet genius.
I have been thinking more about desserts lately, such as this Cherry Chocolate Chip Poke Cake. What I have also been thinking about is, what if I do not want to eat a whole cake or even make a whole cake?
Can I not just make an individual cake such as this chocolate espresso mug cake? Sure, I can! But my dilemma was how do I do it with puff pastry?
Well that, my friends, is an easy fix! You see, the puff pastry comes in a sheet that can be divided into three rectangles. This is the best solution if I just want to make a recipe with one or two (or in this case three) pastries.
Lately I have been obsessed with chocolate and orange flavors that tend to pair well together. A month ago, I made this chocolate orange free-form pie.
Again, I found an easy solution to making dessert! I decided to use these same flavors when making these individual Chocolate Orange Tarts.
I am always talking to your guys about how easy it is to make tarts, but this has to be by far the most simple recipe thus far.
I started with oranges I picked up from my local grocery store. I used cara cara because they were the variety I found at the time, plus they are a tad bit sweeter than other varieties.
Next I decided to just use milk chocolate morsels to drizzle over the top of my pastries. Milk chocolate just so happens to be my favorite chocolate, plus it is what I had on hand, so I went with it!
So back to making these individual desserts. I used a drinking glass to cut three circles into my puff pastry. Then I cut the skin off my orange and put them on the top of my puff pastry.
Next I put them into the oven and allowed them to cook for 15-20 minutes. When I took them out, I let them cool for a few minute before adding my melted chocolate.
See, you guys! So simple!! If I only wanted to make one pasty I could, if I wanted to make a whole batch I could do that as well! ENJOY!
