SumoWeekends: Double Chocolate Mocha Tart

Double Chocolate Mocha Tart

 

Hi Weekenders! This Double Chocolate Mocha Tart is extra special because it was baked with one of Project Weekend’s co-founders, Gail! We baked it together for Jem’s birthday. Try spotting her dainty hands and perfectly manicured fingers in this video! (Makes mine looks really manly hahaha) Jem doesn’t have much of a sweet tooth, and he enjoys drinking coffee. Hence, this recipe is specially created for him – dark chocolate ganache infused with coffee, encased in a rich chocolate tart. Not forgetting the two little macaron pigs that are having a nice “mud” bath.
