Strawberry Jam & Dark Chocolate Tartlettes with Walnut Crust

Here is a really easy and impressive little dessert with a jammy filling and a shatteringly crisp cover of dark chocolate that I contributed to the folks over at Foodlander. The covering isn’t actually crisp the entire way through, just the thinnest & topmost membrane . . . the rest of the topping has an almost ganache-like consistency.

Please don’t judge, but tomorrow I’m going to acknowledge my dependence on the British by eating fish & chips at the local British Pub, Ye Olde King’s Head, a short walk from our house. I’ve had a hankering for real fish & chips recently but after making 2 batches of donuts in the last month, I’m kinda deep fried out.  Although I may change my mind if the fish & chips aren’t as wildly awesome as I’m imagining them to be!  They’ll have Wimbledon and The World Cup playing, plus I’m thinking there won’t be a big crowd on the 4th of July . . . ?

Find the recipe at Foodlander, here.
