Easy and yummy.
What you made was a ganache (truffle) filling so I would not have baked it. After pouring into the shell, I'd refrig for several hours. It will be thick and solid and delicious. For an added goodie use layers of milk choc, white choc and bittersweet. You can just heat the cream to boiling and add to the chopped choc, mix well, add beaten egg, and flavoring. I think cleaning the blender can be messy and unnecessary.

Sounds wonderful Alix. I had always wanted to make this chocolate tart. Now that's it's tried and true by you, I'll give it a shot too. BTW, what mag was it in again (what month)?

Thanks for your input Swann, I did know what I was making. I don't care to feed my kids uncooked eggs in any form, and while I am always willing to mess with a recipe, I don't like to mess with every part of it the first time out. Perhaps another time I will try the no cook method, for this time though, I was pleased with how easy it was to make and the taste was wonderful. Next time I am going to add some orange flavouring.

Dina, it was the Feb mag, but I altered a bunch of stuff so it really isn't quite the same. Let me know if you make the original as I would like to have made that but Madeleine's allergies prevent that.

Alix,

I do not add egg. It will stiffen chocolate but I do not think you need it. I make lots of truffles and ganache frosting but always omit the egg(s). You do not have to worry about refrig. if there is no egg.
