Why I Love This Recipe

I'm the pastry chef at a small hotel...this is one of my best selling desserts. I serve it with Godiva creme anglaise.

Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cups flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder

3/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
6 egg yolks
1/4 cup cornstarch
3 cups milk
8 oz bittersweet chocolate
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups heavy cream
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp confectioners sugar
Cocoa Puffs (the cereal)



Cream together butter and sugar. Add vanilla and egg yolk. Mix together flour and cocoa powder. Mix together butter and flour mixtures. Chill for 1 hour. Roll out and line tart pan. Bake weighted at 350 F for 10 - 15 mins.


Heat milk just until it starts to boil.

Mix sugar, salt, and cornstarch. Add egg yolks and mix.

Mix in a small amount of the hot milk to the yolk mixture. Then add yolk mix to hot milk. Cook over medium heat until mixture thickens. Remove from heat and add chocolate and vanilla. Mix until chocolate is melted. Using a very fine strainer...strain mixture. Pour into tart shell. Cover with plastic wrap making sure to push wrap onto the chocolate filling(prevents a hard skin from forming). Chill tart.


Whip together cream, vanilla, and sugar until light peaks form. Spread onto chilled tart. Sprinkle Cocoa Puffs on top
