Method

  1. Step 1:

    Preheat the oven to 200°c (180°c/gas mark 6)

  2. Step 2:

    Line four 10cm tartlet tins with the pastry and trim off any excess, overhanging the sides of the tins. Lightly prick the base with a fork and chill in the fridge for 15 minutes.

  3. Step 3:

    Use baking paper to line the inside of each tart and fill with baking beans to blind bake your pastry. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes.

  4. Step 4:

    Remove the baking paper and beans and bake for a further 10 minutes, until the pastry cases are dry, crisp and golden in colour.

  5. Step 5:

    Leave the tarts to cool whilst you make the chocolate ganache filling.

  6. Step 6:

    Pour the cream into the saucepan and heat on a medium-low heat, do not boil. Add the two teabags and leave to simmer for a few minutes to steep.

  7. Step 7:

    Remove the teabags and add the chocolate, leaving it to melt and incorporate with the cream. You may want to heat a little bit to help the process.

  8. Step 8:

    Stir the ganache with a spatula or wooden spoon, it might at first look spotty but continue to stir until it comes together.

  9. Step 9:

    Spoon the ganache into each cooked tartlet case and leave to set before serving.

  10. Step 10:

    For an extra finishing touch, create chocolate crowns using a specialised mould and then once set, decorate with edible gold spray.
