  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt


Step 1: Prepare the Crust

In a food processor, combine the all-purpose flour, cold cubed butter, granulated sugar, and salt. Pulse until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Alternatively, you can mix the ingredients by hand using a pastry cutter or two knives.

Step 2: Form the Tart Shell

Transfer the mixture to a 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom. Press the mixture evenly onto the bottom and up the sides of the pan. Use the back of a spoon or a measuring cup to ensure a firm and even crust.

Step 3: Pre-bake the Crust

Place the tart shell in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to chill. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Once chilled, prick the bottom of the crust with a fork to prevent it from puffing up during baking. Bake the crust for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let it cool completely.

Step 4: Prepare the Chocolate Filling

In a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream and unsalted butter over medium heat until it begins to simmer. Remove from heat and add the dark chocolate chips. Let it sit for a minute to allow the chocolate to melt, then whisk until smooth and well combined. Stir in the vanilla extract.

Step 5: Fill the Tart Shell

Pour the chocolate filling into the cooled tart shell. Use a spatula to spread it evenly. Sprinkle the sea salt over the top of the filling, ensuring it is evenly distributed.

Step 6: Chill and Serve

Place the tart in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or until the filling is set. Once chilled, remove the tart from the pan and transfer it to a serving plate. Slice and serve the Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Tart, and enjoy!
