This past Monday, February 6th, I brought these chocolate tarts to Sarah’s Creation Florist early in the morning. By Monday afternoon, they had all sold out! Needless to say, these tarts will be making a reappearance for Valentine’s Day.
I had made a version of these tarts for my friend’s baby shower that I hosted this past weekend. The positive feedback was phenomenal. One guest went home and split half the tart with her roommate and apparently her roommate started moaning like Meg Ryan at Katz’s Deli in the movie “When Harry Met Sally.” I guess that means it was really good?!
Due to this feedback I quickly whipped up another batch and brought them to Sarah’s Creation Florist Monday morning.
Here’s a full description of this tart:
With the velvety smooth chocolate truffle filling, salted-peanut caramel, and dark chocolate ganache drizzle, these tarts could be reminiscent of a refined candy bar. However, the luxurious and seductive texture of the truffle, and the deep amber-colored, intensely flavored caramel (boiled until just shy of burned), combined with the salty peanuts and the addition of a chocolate ganache drizzle (just for good measure) elevate this tart far beyond just another overly sweet and comparatively bland candy bar.
On Monday I also brought some Chocolate Dipped Almond Biscotti.
Perfect for all coffee and tea drinkers! When dipped in a beverage of choice the almonds retain their crunch while the cookie becomes soft and the chocolate wonderfully melty. This dunked cookie is so good and fun to eat that it will be gone long before you reach the bottom of your cup!
Both of these items will be available the week of Valentine’s Day along with several other items including:
- Chocolate Truffle Raspberry Tart (Fancy Chocolate Tart)
- Almond-Orange Tarts with Blood Oranges
- Conversation Heart Frosted Sugar Cookies
- Cookie Pops (heart-shaped frosted sugar cookies on a stick)
- A variety of flavors of small, handmade chocolate truffles,
- A “Breakfast in Bed” theme comprised of Pain au Chocolat (chocolate filled croissants), Almond-Filled Croissants, Gooey Cinnamon Rolls, and Tangerine and Pistachio Caramel Rolls
Some of these items will be available at Sarah’s Creation Florist on Friday and all will be available on Monday (13th) and Tuesday (14th) of next week. Please stop by and grab something for those you love!
