Tools Needed

You'll need the following tools:

These tools will help ensure that your dessert turns out perfectly.


Before we start, there are some preparatory steps:

- Beat the eggs until they become frothy.

- Heat the butter and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat until the butter is melted and the mixture is smooth.

- Gradually add the beaten eggs to the hot butter and sugar mixture while continuously beating until the mixture becomes thick and glossy.

- Beat in the salt until it's fully incorporated.

- Allow the batter to rest for a few minutes before proceeding.

- Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

The Process

Now, let's get into the main part:

1. Roll out the dough on a silpat until it's about 1mm thick.

2. Use the span to cut out the shape of a tart from the dough.

3. Carefully place the tart-shaped dough onto the prepared silpat.

4. In a separate bowl, mix together the cheese and powdered sugar.

5. Drizzle the cheese and powdered sugar mixture over the tart-shaped dough.

6. Bake in the preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for about 10-12 minutes, or until the tart shell is golden brown.

7. Allow the tart shell to cool slightly before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.

8. Once the tart shell is completely cooled, peel off the dough and slice it into thin strips.

9. Roll out the thin strips of dough on a silpat until they're about 1mm thick.

10. Place the rolled-out dough strips on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

11. Spread the melted chocolate over the dough strips.

12. Bake in the preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for about 10-12 minutes, or until the chocolate is fully set.

13. Allow the chocolate to cool completely before cutting it into small squares.
