Raspberry Ganache Pie

By

Dessert is the best part of any Valentine’s Day dinner, right? (wink) Who can say no to dessert, especially when it’s a Raspberry Ganache Tart? But Valentine’s Day desserts should be fancy, right? Yup, I agree. But that doesn’t mean they need to be difficult and time consuming to make. This pie has a handful of ingredients and just a few simple steps later, you have yourself a nice fancy, delicious Valentine’s Day dessert.

It is so smooth and chocolatey and the tartness of the raspberries cuts through the sweetness of the chocolate, creating a perfect combination.

A word to the wise: Don’t use chocolate chips. Chocolate chips taste like chocolate chips, if you know what I mean. Don’t get me wrong, chocolate chips definitely have their place, but when you’re making a fancy dessert, opt for a high quality chocolate. The flavor difference is very noticeable. If you use chocolate chips, your tart will taste like chocolate chips. I used our staff and customer favorite Midnight Delight. It’s a semi-sweet chocolate that (to me) tastes like the cookie part of an Oreo. It’s delicious, trust me.

I hope you’ll make this easy dessert for your Valentine’s Day and enjoy it every bit as much as I did. Happy Valentine’s Day!
