Salted Pistachio Chocolate Tart

We don’t like to think of the holiday season arriving too soon here in most parts of Canada. The reality is that as soon as Halloween hits, November is here and we all get thrown into the spirit of the holidays, alongside shorter days and colder weather. It’s bittersweet, even if you like the change of seasons.

We cling to comfort food and delicious sweets during these darker days in November, so what better than a brilliantly contrasted and colourful Salted Pistachio Chocolate Tart to keep you company during your long Netflix binges?

This delicious and delectable chocolate tart is a classic for the comforting, cool fall season but you don’t need to use a social gathering as an excuse to whip this up. The weather here in Toronto is quickly turning colder, although we’ve had a beautiful fall season this year.

We always love seeing the leaves changing colour, and are super fortunate to have a brilliant view of one of Toronto’s prettiest neighbourhoods right outside our living room.

The chocolate crust is super easy to make, and the ganache is as straight forward as mixing whipping cream and chocolate chips together. We’ve tested the ganache filling until perfection (can’t complain about multiple chocolate tastings!) and have found the perfect ratio of chocolate to cream. Just don’t be like us and burn your cream the first time around…

If you can, find salted unshelled pistachios for this recipe. It might be a bit more work to go through and de-shell them, but it’s well worth the effort. The saltiness of the nuts accompany the chocolate in a thrilling way.

This dessert is decadent and rich, and perfect for chocolate lovers. I recommend using dark chocolate chips for the filling, but you can just as easily substitute white chocolate or milk chocolate chips as well.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease a 9 inch round cake pan with a stick of butter, then press pie crust into pan with spoon and mould with fingers. Freeze for about 10 minutes until pie crust is hardened, and then put in oven for 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, make chocolate ganache by bringing cream just to a boil and simmering for about 8-10 minutes until slightly thickened. Pour overtop of chocolate chips in a heat safe bowl, and stir until thoroughly combined.
  4. Take crust of the oven and let cool for a couple minutes. Pour chocolate ganache filling into crust, and let sit for 10 minutes at room temperature.
  5. De-shell and chop salted pistachios, sprinkle over tart before the ganache has the chance to complete set. Garnish with additional sea salt if desired and let sit in refrigerator to set for at least 4-6 hours.
  6. Enjoy cold fresh out of the fridge!
