I absolutely love Valentine’s Day! And it has nothing to do with love but everything to do with food. I really don’t think we need a special day to celebrate love but because I get to make delicious desserts for this day, I adore it. Plus everything is red and pink and I am the biggest fan of the color red so I go all the more crazy. My mom tells me that when I was little, literally everything in my closet was red. Well not much has changed now, I really try to buy other colors but whenever I go to a store the first dress/top/jacket I like is always red, like always! In fact it has become so funny that whenever we go shopping this is pretty muchΒ our usual conversation.

Me: Isn’t this so pretty? Wow!

Hubby: hmmm

Me: What hmm, don’t you think it’s nice?

Hubby: well it’s red so what do I say! You like it not because it’s pretty but because it’s RED!

Me:Β πŸ˜Β πŸ˜•

You guys get my obsession with red now!

To make this tart all you have to do is crush the cookies. I used graham crackers but you can oreos or any other cookie of your choice as well. And then press the crumb in the pan to form the crust. Make chocolate ganache, pour on top of the crust and decorate with valentine’s day M&Ms and that’s it! I hope you guys give this tart a try this valentine’s day and impress your loved one!

Method

Using a food processor crush the garahm crackers along with granulated sugar. You can also put them in a ziplock bag and whack them using your rolling pin. Transfer crumbs to a bowl and add melted butter to it. Mix till combined and the crumbs feel like wet sand.

Transfer this to your tart pan. I used this 14 x 4.5 inch rectangular tart pan here. Press the crumbs to form the crust, use the back of your meausuring cup to firmly press the mixture into the pan. Place the tart pan into the refrigerator while youΒ make the filling.

Meanwhile take a bowl and add chocolate chip and 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter to it. Set aside. Add heavy cream to a pan on medium-low heat.Β You have to heat the cream till it’s warm enough. You don’t wantΒ to boil it, just when you see small bubbles on the sides, remove it from heat.

Pour this cream over the chocolate chips. Leave the bowl as such for 2-3 minutes.

After 2-3 minutes the chocolate chips would have melted, take a whisk and whisk till you have a smooth ganache. Adding butter is optional but it makes the ganache glossy/shiny.

Once the ganache is smooth, take out your prepared tart pan and pour the ganache on top of the crust. Immediately sprinkle the Valentine’s Day M&Ms all over.
