Decadent, rich chocolate ganache filling, a nutty crust and juicy sweet fresh figs make this roasted figs chocolate ganache tart a treat for a special occasion. And not to worry, it is super easy to make.
If I have to pick one, just one fruit towards the end of summer, hands down is going to be fresh figs. I’ve been in love with figs for years and every summer I look for them at the local farmer’s market or grocery store. As much as I would like to have a fig in the back yard these figs came for California. And as much as I would like to say I hand picked them from the tree, I bought them from the local grocery store.
Either way, hand picked by me or just picked from the produce section of the store fresh figs make my heard skip a beat.
After eating almost a whole box in just few days I remembered this chocolate fig tart recipe from my friend Sylvie. I have saved it since she shared the recipe 2 years ago and have been waiting for the right time to make it.
Few weeks ago seemed like the perfect time. And my friends agreed with me. The whole 11″ tart was gone in no time!
If you’ve never had figs and chocolate, well I highly advise you to give it a try. In my opinion is as good, or maybe even better than chocolate and strawberries and i’m pretty sure everyone know how insanely good that combo is!
This roasted figs chocolate ganache tart was adapted from Sylvie’s tart. Although I did not add roasted figs at the bottom of the part like Sylvie did (because I ate most of them while waiting for the crust to chill) I made sure each slice got at least one piece of roasted fig on top.
The crust is made gluten free, using ground pecans and rolled oats while the ganache is made from a combo of bittersweet and semisweet chocolate and heavy cream. If you want a vegan version, you can use coconut milk like Sylvie did.
