Chocolate Almond Butter Tarte
Trader Joe’s Chocolate Almond Butter Tarte was initially conceived as something entirely different. Oh, that conception was a tarte, and it had chocolate in it, so we suppose it wasn’t entirely different. But when we tasted the first version we had an epiphany. And that epiphany involved almond butter. This was a delicious epiphany that required our French supplier to sample some Trader Joe’s Almond Butter so they could match its taste and texture. With that smooth and creamy nut butter foundation, a generous layer of rich, sweet, chocolate ganache is added. These layers are nestled in a butter crust, which – in another pastry twist – has cocoa added. The result is a crisp, buttery shell with plenty of cocoa flavor. The Tarte is finished with an artful sprinkling of dark chocolate curls and roasted almond pieces.
This ready-made dessert only requires you defrost it – it takes about an hour at room temperature, or three hours in the refrigerator. Serve it by itself, or topped with your favorite cream (ice or whipped) to complement the Chocolate Almond Butter intensity. It serves four people as a full dessert. For a larger group, cut the Tarte into smaller slivers for a sweet treat served alongside hot coffee or tea.
