Chocolate tart and amarena cherries {vegan}

tarte au chocolat

C’est parti pour les recettes de fêtes, et on commence par les recettes de Noël avec cette tarte au chocolat et cerises amarena. Cette année j’ai voulu vous proposer un menu végétal facile à réaliser et avec un budget tout doux. Pour cette tarte au chocolat, je me suis inspirée des goûts de la célèbre et classique forêt noire que j’aime tant, du coup revisitée en tarte ! Toujours pas de bûche par ici cette année mais j’avoue que j’aime bien casser les codes du dessert de Noël et me laisser surprendre par autre chose. This tart is the perfect dessert if you like to end your meal with chocolate, I know there are always two teams, that of fruit and that of chocolate so in this dessert there are both to satisfy everyone !!!

A creamy dessert, melting and crunchy at the same time,

I am sure that this tart will seduce you, actually it eats itself ! In addition, nothing complicated in this recipe, just a ganache to make and that’s it! (if you see the ganache it’s easy, do not panic !) ! And if you have no more space in the fridge, you just have to put the pie to freeze on the balcony or windowsill, this is the advantage of this season ! And since this is only the beginning, I will come back very quickly with an idea for a dish !

    I have the memory of a Black Forest, for my dad's birthday… Very successful and magnificent, MORE !
    I made the mistake of adding amarena cherries, what a big mistake, and yes, we are not very sugary in the family and unfortunately the amarena cherries are so sweet that after the first bite, everyone removed the cherries as they progressed into this delicious cake !!! And yes, the cake was delicious, but cherries sickening with sugar. I never bought Amarena again ! I prefer morello cherries.
    What I would do when making this magnificent tart, Merci

      It’s true that these are sugar-candied cherries, so obviously sweeter than fresh cherries or just in a jar.. But you can adjust the sugar by choosing a chocolate with a higher cocoa content 😉
