Chocolate Gnash Tart with White Chocolate Sauce

How to make Chocolate Gnash Tart with White Chocolate Sauce:


For the pastry:
(or buy a 10 inch ready made)
250g (9oz) plain flour, plus
extra for dusting
pinch salt
100g (3.5oz) cold butter
1 free-range egg
1 free-range egg yolk
50g (1.75oz) caster sugar
For the filling:  
400ml/14fl oz double cream
few drops vanilla extract
100g (3.5oz) caster sugar
400g (14oz) dark chocolate, approx 70 per cent cocoa solids
50g (1.75oz) butter
For the sauce:  
500ml/17fl oz single cream
1 vanilla pod, split lengthways
100g (3.5oz) white chocolate
  chopped raspberries
  fresh mint sprigs

1. For the pastry, place the flour, salt and butter into a food processor and pulse until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
2. Add the egg, egg yolk and sugar and pulse until the mixture comes together to form a dough. Place into a bowl, cover the bowl with cling film and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
3. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.
4. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface until large enough to line a 25cm/10in fluted tart tin. Place into the tin, then place a piece of greaseproof paper on top and weigh it down with baking beans or rice.
5. Place into the oven for 15 minutes, then remove the paper and beans and return to the oven for five minutes, or until lightly browned.
6. For the filling, bring the cream, vanilla extract and sugar slowly to the boil in a pan.
7. Break the chocolate and butter into pieces and place into a large bowl. Pour over the cream mixture and whisk slowly until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth.
8. Pour the chocolate mixture into the tart case and leave to cool. Place in the fridge to set for two hours.
9. For the sauce, place half of the cream and the vanilla pod into a pan and heat until the mixture is warm but not too hot when touched with a finger. Take off the heat and remove the vanilla pod.
10. Add the white chocolate and stir until melted. Stir in the remaining cream.
11. To serve, cut the tart into wedges and drizzle over the white chocolate sauce.

Serve with raspberries and a sprig of mint.
Best to take the tart out of the fridge about 15 minutes before serving, so the chocolate will be soft to get your fork into.
