RUSTIC DARK CHOCOLATE TART

WITH BLOOD ORANGES AND SEA SALT


rustic chocolate tart

In late winter, citrus trees are filled with gorgeous fruits ripened for the picking.  One of my favorite flavor combinations is dark chocolate and orange slices.  This time I decided to make a play on those flavors and kick things up a notch with this rustic dark chocolate tart by dipping blood orange slices in chocolate and adding them to the top with a little sea salt.  

I have been wanting to make something with blood oranges for quite some time because I love the taste and well they are just so pretty I couldn’t resist.  Blood oranges are a little harder to find in my area, unlike other types of citrus that you can find here year round.  I basically had to wait until they became available at my nearby grocery store so as soon as I saw them, naturally I snatched them up with a huge grin on my face!

This was my first time making a chocolate tart and I was a little uneasy about whether or not it would turn out.  Luckily it did and now I can share my recipe with all of you!

This chocolate tart was incredibly quick and easy to make, I would definitely recommend making one of these for your next gathering because they look like you put way more effort into them than what really goes down!  Check out the recipe for this simple dessert and don’t worry if you don’t have any blood oranges available, you can always substitute them with navel oranges or tangerines.

  • Ok guys it’s “Friday night and I feel alright” 🎶 Name that song! Go! P.S. I’ll give you a little hint, it’s from the 90’s and it’s not by Michael Jordan.... Let’s see if you can guess 😏
  • This midi dress is “The Love of my Life” no really that’s what it’s called and it’s such a good staple. P.S. It now comes in mustard! 💛

  • Instagram would “succ” if it weren’t for you! Seriously guys, I mean it! I’m so thankful for you and your kind words, patience, and support! Thank you so much for following, liking, commenting, and interacting with my stories! Allowing me to get to know you as well as getting to know a little more about myself too if I’m honest! Thank you for being there, keeping me alive much like these succulents and helping me grow! Doing this is a learning process, but if it weren’t for you, I would have never found my true passion as a creator and for that I will forever be thankful! ❤️❤️❤️ .

  • I’ve been on a straw, raffia, and rattan binge here lately. I love the raw textures and natural colors. They also double as a pretty accessory lying around as home decor. What are your thoughts on this trend? 
Also, this cute jump suit was a steal under $30 and it comes in black!

  • Another lovely Farmer’s Market pic from this weekend! They have seriously upped their game on presentation and I really wanted that cool planter for my herbs! No I didn’t buy it (props only), but wouldn’t mind finding/buying one similar and stashing it in my office/craft room for 3 years before I actually put it to use... 😂 #vintagefinds #hoarder #guilty
