S'mores Fruit Tart

S'mores: The famous camp side "dessert" that every persons craves.

From the cracker to the chocolate and the marshmallows...who could resist this wonderful combination.

We have use this combination of ingredients and made it to an indoor version of the dessert so you could serve it right on the plate.

This rich and decadent tart is paired with berries and the tartness (pun not intended :p) of the berries compliment the sweet marshmallow and the rich chocolate ganache filling.

Really simple steps to make a dessert tart (well not as simple as making a smore if you have a bonfire)

Give it a try and tell us your opinion on our take of a classic twist :)

Berry S’mores Tart
Yields 1 – 6 inch Tart

85g (3 oz.) Graham Crackers / Digestive Biscuits
(1 tbsp.) Flour
15g (1 tbsp. + 1tsp) Brown sugar, packed
1.5g (¼ tsp.) Salt
4g (1 tsp.) Vegetable Shortening
30g (2 tbsp.) Butter
(1 ½ tbsp.) Cold Water

100g (3.5 oz.) Semisweet Chocolate
30g (2 tbsp.) Heavy cream
15g (1 tbsp.) Butter

1/2 jar(3 oz) of Marshmallow Fluff
Assorted Berries

1. Combine all dry ingredients in a food processor and pulse until fine
2. Melt butter and shortening together
3. Add the melted mixture into the fine crumbs and mix it well
4. Add cold water and mix until it forms a dough
5. Press the dough into a 6 inch tart mold and refrigerate for 30 minutes
6. Preheat oven to 170°C (350 ˚F)
7. Dock the bottom of the crust with a fork
8. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes
9. Let the baked tart cool for at least an hour
10. Melt Chocolate, butter and heavy cream in a water bath/ bain-marie
11. Pour the smooth chocolate mixture into the cooled tart shell
12. Refrigerate it until chocolate is firm
13. Spoon Marshmallow crème onto the tart and spread it out evenly
14. Place washed and hulled berries of your choice to serve

I. If you plan to make it a day ahead before serving, place the berries on the day it is served as
        washed and cut fruits will release juices when coming in contact with sugar
II. For a more simple variation, you can just skip the berries and marshmallow fluff and replace it with
        marshmallows and torch it with a flame to create a more authentic s’mores effect
III. A 6 inch tart can serve to around 8 people as it is so rich and decadent, a small slice is enough :)

Hope you guys enjoy this weeks [How To's]

See  you next week :)
