June 11, 2016, 06:32:29 am Ruhi_Rose: I came across a pinterest page on the Quran which says "The Quran is the central religious text of Islam."  Let me put it this way: Quran is the ONLYText of Islam. If u r following the Quran, u don't need anything else.

 BismEm


Sis Ruhi, salams!  Smiley  With reference to your request for chocolate tarts at Harira post.

Sorry no photos available at the moment but hope you find the tips useful, InshAllah.

Here are a couple of very easy methods for making chocolate tarts. 

For pastry use Bulk Barn's flaky crust mix.  That's the first step for making things easier Smiley You know how easy that is.  Only add water as per directions, roll out, cut to size, bake and cool.

First one:  At a kids' party last summer, a sister made some incredible chocolate tarts along side jam tarts with the minimal of labor.   For chocolate filling she used Betty Crocker's milk chocolate frosting and for jam filling, seedless strawberry jam, both available in all stores.  Then she decorated them with little chopped pistachios and walnut bits.  Looked and tasted classic involving relatively little work, ha? Smiley

Second:  Another very easy way of making standard chocolate filling for chocolate pie or tart is this.  You'll need three-quarter cup chocolate chips or chopped chocolate bar (both avaiable at Bulk Barn) and half cup cream.  Place chocolate chips in a pyrex bowl or cooking pan.  Heat the cream in the microwave for about 1 and a half minutes until hot.  Now pour it over the chocolate chips.  Leave it for a couple of minutes, then start stirring.  Initially it will look lumpy.  But keep stirring and it will gradually smooth out into a thick batter-like mixture.  That's it.  Allow to cool a little before filling the tart shells in spoonfuls.

Enjoy!  Cheesy

Both ideas sound super. Never thought of the first one though.  Sounds real smarty!  I think I could try that tomorrow as I have both ingredients available in the kitchen - flaky crust mix and the chocolate cake frosting. 

The second recipe also sounds super.   I guess the chocolate paste would thicken fast and not be too easy to fill, eh?  Pistachios and walnut pieces for topping sound great, pistachio in particular is awesome for adding an attractive color combination.  Any other decorations you can suggest?

No it isn't too messy sis.  No more than filling tart shells with lemon curd. A good way is to use a ziplock sandwich bag.  With a scissor cut off a tiny corner at the side, then fill the bag with chocolate paste and pipe it filling the tarts. Comes pretty neat.  This is what I generally do.  If you have the regular piping kit, still better.   Other decorations I often use are: Graham cracker crumbs and white chocolate.  Melt a few pieces of white chocolates and put a drop over each brown-chocolate filled tarts with a small teaspoon.  Looks cool and has a good taste.
