Chocolate Raspberry Pecan Tart




One word to describe this chocolate raspberry tart would be decadent!

The base is made with mainly pecan meal (crushed pecans) no rolling, just an easy press in crust. The filling is a raspberry puree and a silky smooth chocolate ganache, topped with a raspberry cream. The flavor combination is divine! This is a real show stopper dessert, specially if you are entertaining. A treat for the eyes and the tummy!
