A buttery chocolate crust is filled with a silky chocolate ganache with hints of champagne & cognac. It’s then topped with luxurious chocolate truffles & champagne glass sugar cookies. It’s the ultimate of romantic desserts & is perfect for Valentines Day, anniversaries, New Years, or any other day you want to up the romance & treat your senses to an indulgent chocolate dessert.
What could be more elegant during the holiday season than a chocolate, almond & pistachio tart filled with a creamy, dreamy mascarpone filling & then topped with Malbec poached pears & the most heavenly Malbec molasses?
Well hello there. Long time no see. I made you this Chocolate Bourbon Pie with Mint & a Brown Sugar Pecan Crust. I had every intentions of sharing this beauty with you right before the Kentucky Derby so that you could be seduced by its rich chocolate-y goodness while you watched the ponies trot around the race track. But that was not meant to be as Shitala, the Indian goddess of sickness, unleashed her fury, leaving me stricken with a case of the flu so mad it seemed my body would never be able to successfully shake it.
I was not happy about this curse because I had set aside my intense fear of needles and braved the dreaded flu shot. Yes. I embarrassed myself by acting like a three year old as I got poked and prodded. . .and all for nothing as it turns out.
