Delish! My mom made this for me for my bday, after I saw this recipe. I'm a chocolate+caramel+salt fan so it was right up my alley, but nonetheless, it's a well-constructed recipe with worthwhile results.
I didn't like this very much, I thought it tasted like hot fudge sauce in a tart shell. Too dense, didn't like the texture.
Very good and much enjoyed by all.
It's probably just me but I had trouble covering a 9.5 inch tart pan with the amount of dough in this recipe, so I had to make about 1/2 more. I made it ahead and froze it, just popped it into the oven. I was concerned to see the sides fall about 1/4 inch, but it turned out the shrinkage did not matter. The taste of the crust was very good, with the citrus taste contrasting nicely with the chocolate. Somewhat snappy, however, as my first cut with a serving spatula sent a crack going off in another direction, so I used a sharp knife instead.
I found that the filling set much faster than I expected, so keep an eye on it. The chocolate I used was Trader Joe's Swiss dark (71%), very rich. (Note: the salt and candied pistachios are a must)
Excellent, impressive and easy. The pistachios are great with all the chocolate. I lined the plate with fresh raspberries. My guests loved the shortbread crust. I made two of these in two days, with a full house of guests.
An impressive finish to an elegant dinner that's easier to make than you might think. Rich and sophisticated. I agree with the reviewer who said not to omit the pistachios and Fleur De Sol garnishes-both truly add a lot to the finished product.
My two small children helped with the pistachios, luckily I bought more than needed because they ate a ton of them. I had to keep my husband from eating the pistachios before and after caramelizing them. Overall the recipe was easy and not as time consuming as I thought it would be. The orange zest was a great compliment to the chocolate. I will make this again!
Delicious crust; delicious filling. Easy to make! Goes quickly. I forgot to buy pistachios, but it's excellent alone, and I may make the brittle with other nuts. Thanks!
simple to make and absolutely delicious!
This dessert was really wonderful. It will be in my repertoire for special occasions for a long time to come. It is a very elegant dessert and incredibly easy. The salt and caramelized pistachios are the perfect finishing touches - do not omit them.
