Thrilled to be partnering with American Heritage Chocolate today to bring you a gorgeous recipe plus all kinds of fun news going on with them. Have you had their chocolate before? It is fantastic!
First off, let’s talk about this gorgeous tart. See recipe below.
American Heritage Chocolate Tart
- 6 oz block of chocolate American Heritage
- 1 tbsp rice flour
- 3 tbsp white sugar or to taste
- 5 medium egg yolks or 4 large ones
- 1 tbsp whole milk
- 1 pint heavy cream
- 1 prepared frozen pie crust
- 1 pinch salt
- Grate the chocolate into a bowl and set aside. Combine salt, egg yolks, rice flour and milk in a separate bowl and set aside.
- Pour all the cream and the chocolate into a sauce pan and heat to a boil, stirring constantly. Add the sugar and cook until both the sugar and the chocolate are melted.
- Take a quarter of a cup of the hot mixture and slowly add to the egg yolk and rice flour mixture, stirring constantly with a whisk, to prevent scrambling.
- Stir the warmed egg yolk mixture into the sauce pan and bring all the ingredients to a boil for about a minute. Set aside and allow it to cool to room temperature. While the mixture is cooling, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Pour the chocolate mixture into the frozen pie shell, set it upon a cookie sheet to prevent spillage and bake for 40-45 minutes, until set. Remove from oven and let it cool to room temperature. Refrigerate for 3-4 hours, or overnight.
How gorgeous is this American Heritage Chocolate Drink?! Oh my goodness, thick, creamy and fabulous.
The History of Chocolate
Chocolate is American History. It is more than just a food or confection. Chocolate reflects different groups of people, cultures and historical events throughout the ages, and allows us to share a common connection through time.
Mars Chocolate North America is dedicated to sharing chocolate’s fascinating journey through time–how chocolate was made, how it was used, where it came from, and what it tasted like throughout history.
Made with all-natural ingredients and no preservatives, American Heritage Chocolate is an artisan dark chocolate containing 63% cacao. Mildly spicy, and slightly sweet, American Heritage Chocolate is flavored with a blend of spices and ingredients available during colonial times, including cinnamon, nutmeg, chili pepper, orange, anise and vanilla.
They offer Chocolate Sticks, Chocolate Bites, Chocolate Blocks and Finely Grated Chocolate Drink. They are sold at over 150 fine gift shops at historic sites and museums in the US and Canada.
