Prep Time : 1:00 | Cook Time : 0:35 | Total Time : 1:35 | Serving : 10 person.

Ingredients

  • 250g good-quality dark chocolate, broken into pieces

  • 200g butter, chopped

  • 6 eggs

  • 1/3 cup caster sugar

  • 200g mini chocolate Easter eggs (or speckled eggs), for decoration

  • cocoa powder, to serve

Sweet shortcrust pastry

  • 1 2/3 cups plain flour

  • 3/4 cup pure icing sugar

  • 125g butter, chilled, chopped

  • 1 egg yolk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 tablespoon chilled water

Method

  • Step 1

    Make shortcrust pastry: Combine flour, icing sugar and butter in a food processor. Process until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add egg yolk, vanilla and chilled water. Process until pastry just comes together. Turn onto a floured surface and knead until smooth. Pat into a 10cm disc. Wrap in greaseproof paper and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until firm enough to roll out.

  • Step 2

    Preheat oven and a large flat baking tray to 190°C. Roll pastry out between 2 sheets baking paper to a 34cm round. Use round to line base and sides of a 2.5cm-deep, 26cm (base) fluted loose-based tart pan. Trim excess pastry. Freeze pastry case for 15 minutes or until firm.

  • Step 3

    Line pastry case with baking paper. Three-quarters fill with dried beans or uncooked rice. Place on hot tray. Bake for 10 minutes or until firm to touch. Remove paper and beans. Bake for a further 8 to 10 minutes or until pastry base is light golden. Remove from oven. Reduce oven to 180°C and return baking tray to oven.

  • Step 4

    Meanwhile, place chocolate and butter in a heatproof, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, uncovered, on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring every minute with a metal spoon, or until melted and smooth. Using hand beaters, beat eggs and sugar in a large bowl for 4 minutes or until pale and thick. Pour in chocolate mixture. Beat until well combined.

  • Step 5

    Pour chocolate mixture into pastry case. Place on hot tray and bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until just set. Cool to room temperature.

  • Step 6

    Arrange mini Easter eggs on tart. Dust with cocoa powder and serve.
