Ingredients

For the chocolate shortcrust pastry:

  • 95 g butter
  • 75 g caster sugar
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 190 g plain flour
  • 30 g cocoa powder

For the chocolate fudge filling:

  • 3 large eggs
  • 150 g light brown sugar
  • 150 g dark brown muscovado sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 180 g melted butter
  • 65 g cocoa powder
  • 45 g plain flour
  • 6 fresh raspberries (for decoration)
  • 6 x 10cm mini tarlet tins
  • Blind baking beans

Instructions

1
Grease and line six 10cm (4in) mini tartlet tins, then set aside. Preheat the oven to 180°C/Gas Mark 4. 
2
In a freestanding electric mixer, beat the sugar and butter for the pastry. Bring together before adding the eggs, beating, then incorporating the remaining ingredients. 
3
Roll out the pastry and cut six 15cm (6in) diameter circles which can each be placed into a tartlet case. Remember, you can reroll shortcrust pastry so don’t worry if you can’t get six circles from your first roll. 
4
Once each tartlet case is lined with pastry, put them in the fridge for 30 minutes, before placing a small sheet of baking paper in each case and filling with a handful of baking beans. Repeat for all six cases. 
5
Bake for 15 minutes before removing the baking beans and paper, then return to the oven for a further 7-10 minutes. 
6
When ready, remove the cases from the oven and allow to cool completely, keeping the oven on. 
7
Prepare the chocolate fudge filling by whisking the eggs until foamy, before whisking in the sugars and vanilla bean paste to form a thick mixture. 
8
Whisk in the flour and cocoa powder to form a gloopy chocolate mixture, then spoon the mixture into the cooled cases, filling each nearly to the top. 
9
Bake them in the oven for 25 minutes, then remove and allow to cool. Top each tartlet with a raspberry and dust with icing sugar. 
10
Serve soon after baking – these taste even better when slightly warm. They can also be eaten at room temperature.
