Earl Grey Infused Chocolate Tartine

1114-earl-grey-chocolate-tartine-1

This recipe is my version of the Tartines et Chocolat served at Merci in Paris. I never would have ordered it since I’m not huge on chocolate, but my friend Nana highly recommended it so I did. Oh boy, I totally ate up every last bit of the spreadable chocolate.

With mine, I added in a twist to this ganache by adding in a citrus and black tea flavor with Earl Grey.

It’s scary how quickly this can be whipped up. You’ll need:

2/3 cup heavy cream
2/3 cup semisweet mini chocolate chips
3 tablespoons Earl Grey loose leaf tea
1 tablespoon butter
Baguette (I prefer demi or mini baguette for this tartine.)

In a saucepan, simmer heavy cream and take off heat as the cream starts to bubble along the edges of the pan. Steep Earl Grey tea in the heavy cream for 5 minutes. Strain.

(I filled tea filter bags with Earl Grey to make it easier to strain.)

Put the saucepan with the tea infused heavy cream back on the stove and simmer once more until bubbles form along the sides of the saucepan. Take off heat and stir in the chocolate and butter.

Mix until everything has melted together.

Pour the chocolate spread into a small bowl and serve with a horizontally cut toasted baguette. Generously spread or spoon the Earl Grey infused chocolate onto baguette and enjoy!
