Ingredients

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.

  2. Dust the work surface with flour and roll the dough out thinly. Use it to line one large 25cm/10in tart ring or 6 individual tartlet rings 10cm/4in in diameter. Trim away any excess.

  3. Line the tart case with baking parchment, fill with baking beans and bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes. Remove the baking beans and paper and cook for a further 10 minutes or until the base of the tart is golden-brown and cooked through. Remove the tart from the oven and set aside to cool.

  4. Meanwhile, heat the chocolate and cream in a saucepan set over a medium heat, stirring continuously until the chocolate melts and mixture is smooth and thick.

  5. Sprinkle the finely chopped stem ginger over the base of the tart, reserving a little to garnish.

  6. Pour the chocolate mixture into the tart shell and chill in the fridge for 45 minutes, or until set. Sprinkle over the remaining stem ginger.
