Directions

For the pastry:

  1. Melt the chocolate.
  2. Put the flour, cocoa, butter, sugar and salt in a bowl and mix with the chocolate.
  3. Knead the dough and chill for 15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 180°C top and bottom heat.
  5. Divide the dough into six parts and press into the respective greased tins. Bake for 12 minutes, let cool.

For the filling:

  1. Add the cream, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla extract in a saucepan and heat.
  2. Soak the powdered gelatine in a little water and let it swell. As soon as the cream mixture is warm, stir in the gelatine.
  3. Finally, stir in the cream cheese. Put aside.

To decorate:

  1. Melt the dark chocolate couverture. Mix with a tablespoon of cream and cream cheese mixture and place in a piping bag, cut a small hole in the bag.
  2. Add the cream cheese mixture to the tartlets.
  3. Using the chocolate mix, pipe a swirl starting at the centre of the tartlet until you get to the outside edge.
  4. Use a wooden stick to move through, and starting from the center of your swirl, lightly drag it in a straight line to the edge. Continue around the tartlet repeating that step and alternate pulling from the center out and then from the outside to the center to create the spider web pattern.
  5. Chill for four hours.
