Chocolate embraces a savory enhancement in this decadent dessert. With the infusion of fresh rosemary, taste buds - and hearts - will flutter.
- 2 cups ground shortbread cookies
- 5 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 cups (12-ounce package) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
- 1 can (12 fluid ounces) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
- 2 large egg yolks
- 3 sprigs fresh rosemary or 1/3 cup fresh mint sprigs
- Sweetened whipped cream for garnish (optional)
PREHEAT oven to 350° F.
PLACE ground cookies, butter and sugar in food processor; process until mixture clumps together. Press onto bottom of ungreased 9- or 10-inch tart pan with removable bottom.
BAKE for 8 minutes or until golden. Cool in pan on wire rack.
PLACE morsels in large bowl; set aside. Whisk together evaporated milk and egg yolks in medium, heavy-duty saucepan. Stir in rosemary. Heat over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes or until mixture is very hot (not boiling) and thickens slightly. Strain mixture over morsels, pressing against rosemary to release flavor. Stir mixture until morsels are melted and mixture is completely smooth.
POUR into crust; refrigerate for 4 hours or until firm. Top each slice with dollop of whipped cream before serving.
Review This Recipe
Maybe a little too adventurous
While we liked the crust on this and the smooth texture of the filling, the rosemary just did not seem like the right combination. It was too strong and, while I had high hopes that my family would like this, they just did not. I think that replacing the rosemary with a little instant espresso powder OR some orange zest would give this recipe the perfect twist. Overall, I would try this recipe again, but with variations instead of the rosemary.
Rosemary kissed chocolate satin tart
OMG! For those that didn't rate this a 5...are you kidding? I have made this over a dozen times and bowled them over every time! The rosemary is almost a mint taste in the tart. At first try I was worried. I love it and I run a ring of rasberries around the top edge, and I puddle a little rasberry coulis on the plate when serving. Don't even mention rosemary to your guests and they will question the secret ingredient with enthusiasm!
a bit odd
I love chocolate, and I like rosemary but I find I prefer them seperate. (We're not crazy about mint, so I didn't try that version. The family loved the crust.)
this was ok-my kids did not care for it. I tried the rosemary but wished I had tried the mint instead.
Won't make again.
My sister did my taxes and I wnated to make something special for her. She loves dessert, especially chocolate. I was afraid to use the rosemary and substituted mint. I have been keeping a window box herb garden and used fresh mint. She loved it.
This was so easy to make and very creamy. It was a big hit with my co-workers and I will make it again soon
Adult Chocolate Tart
I thought this was a VERY pleasant Adult tasting pie. I would not make this for the children but and Adult gathering will truly appreciate these grownup flavors.
I made the pie with rosemary
As my family doesn't care for mint, I made the pie with rosemary, which we all like. The combination of chocolate and rosemary was not very popular with the home crowd, so I probably won't try it again.
Rosemary-Kissed Chocolate Satin Tart
I did not hesitate using the fresh rosemary in this recipe...who could not trust your variations for a chocolate dessert? We all loved it and I shared some with our neighbors who could not tell what the secret ingredient was. This is a hit and I will make it again and again.

Chocolate Satin Tart
Ok- I thought, rosemary, they got to be kidding. Well this is wonderful. Sophisticated,a bit out of the ordinary. The herb was not over powering and the chocolate and mint all worked well together. This tart is one that you have to try for yourself. I may play with this recipe-I think next time I may try cinnamon or maybe a spicy pepper like chipolte.
