Description

The amazing combination of dark chocolate and pumpkin in this dreamy dark chocolate pumpkin tart gives traditional pumpkin pie a run for its title as fall’s favorite dessert!


Ingredients

Crust:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup dark cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted

Filling:

  • 1 (15 ounce) can pure pumpkin
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Spray a 9-inch round tart pan with a removable bottom with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, sugar and salt. Make a well in the center and add the melted butter. Stir into a crumbly dough.
  3. Press dough into the bottom and up the sides of the tart pan. Place tart pan on a baking sheet and bake crust for 10 minutes. The crust will bubble just a bit as it bakes. Remove and let cool for 10 minutes while you make the filling.
  4. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, sweetened condensed milk, egg, pumpkin pie spice and salt. Pour into crust.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes at 425°F. Reduce oven to 350°F and bake for another 25-30 minutes or until filling is set and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Let cool at least 1 hour before serving. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream, if desired.

Notes
