Chocolate Tartlets

Chocolate pie, who can resist?

 

Ingredients

 

1/3 cup of cocoa powder

1 cup of sugar

Pinch of salt

1/4 cup of plain flour

2 & 1/4 cups of cold water

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 Tbsp butter

coarse sea salt, if liked

Pack of ready-made pastry cases

 

Method

 

In a large saucepan put the cocoa powder, sugar, salt and flour, mix those together well.

Add the water and mix well with a balloon whisk.

Place the saucepan on a medium heat, stirring all the time until it comes to a boil.

Boil for one or two minutes, until it starts thickening.

Take it off the heat and add the vanilla extract and the butter, stir well until the butter has melted.

Pour into the pastry cases, leave in the fridge for 2 – 3 hours to cool and set.

 

Tips:

 

Sprinkling with coarse sea salt will cut through the sweetness of the chocolate.

I used 8 small pastry cases, but also had some mixture left over to put into 3 ramekins and 2 irish coffee cups.

This will also be enough filling for a 10” pastry case if you wanted to make one large pie.
