baked sunday mornings: chocolate whiskey tart

Chocolate Whiskey Tart

This week’s recipe for Baked Sunday Mornings is the Simple Chocolate Whiskey Tart, from Baked Elements.  Man, did we love this one! The tart consists of a buttery shortbread crust, topped with a rich, fudgy chocolate filling.  Daren thought it tasted almost like a brownie in tart form (not the texture, just the chocolate-yness).  We couldn’t taste the whiskey in the final product (there’s only 2 tablespoons in the whole thing), but I didn’t necessary think that was a bad thing :)  The recipe was simpler than most from the Baked boys, which was a welcome reprieve this week.  As much as I love my KitchenAid, sometimes a recipe that doesn’t involve pulling out the mixer is great!  I don’t have a full-size tart pan, so I made individual mini tarts instead.  The recipe worked perfectly for 6 mini (4-inch) tarts; just decrease the baking time to 12-13 minutes.  When they came out they looked almost like giant peanut butter cups – which led to the fantastic idea of trying to add a layer of peanut butter filling next time.  Yum!

  1. Oh yeah, those are so cute as mini tarts. (Gonna have to do that next time)
    Too funny, I showed my hubbie the pic of your mini tarts and his first response was ‘they’d be good with a layer of peanut butter’. (Guess great minds think alike!!) :)

  2. Love your mini tarts too! I also found the booze was subtle in the chocolate filling. But then I made the boozy whipped cream so that made up for it!

  3. Ali! Your mini tarts are perfection! I particularly love how the sides look, next time I’m going to make my crust shorter so the chocolate shows through.

    I too am a fan of ridiculously easy desserts, especially with a big payoff!

  4. Whaooo!!! What a good idea to make individual tart. And would be so nice and easy to serve! Just beautiful!

  5. Squee, I love the way the look like mini peanut butter cups! These are gorgeous!
